This beautiful bracelet is hand dyed to resemble Tekhelet, Biblical blue, a color mentioned in the Bible over 30 times!

In the Bible, Tekhelet is described as a rare and valuable material, akin to gold and silver. There is a Biblical commandment to tie a thread of Tekhelet around the tzitzit (fringes) of cornered garments (Numbers 15:38). Tekhelet is also required in the production of the High Priest’s garments, as well as for the coverings of the vessels of the Holy Temple.

Description

This blue bracelet is made of 100% wool, hand-dyed with organic indigo which looks like the ‘tekhelet’ blue mentioned in the Old Testament, representing the skies and the seas.

“Speak to B’nei Yisrael and instruct them to make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments throughout the ages; let them attach a cord of blue to the fringe at each corner” (Numbers 15:38).

The biblical blue color tekhelet (תכלת) is mentioned numerous times in the Bible. This color, worn on the fringes known as tzitzit (ציצית) placed on the corners of four-cornered garments, is meant to remind us of the sky, and, by extension, of Hashem and His constant presence in our lives. For close to fifteen hundred years, the source of this special blue dye had been lost to the world. In an exciting discovery in recent years, marine biologists together with Talmudic researchers have identified the source of tekhelet as a small snail found off the coast of northern Israel, near Haifa. Today, for the first time in centuries, people are once again wearing tekhelet on their tzitzit. From even the smallest sea creature, we continue to see the wonders of the Bible come to life in Eretz Yisrael.

The bracelet is a standard size of 17 cm (6.7 inches) but can sometimes be up to 20 cm. It is 5 mm thick and the clasps are 5-7 mm.

This bracelet was hand-dyed and tied by Israeli artist Suzanne Dekel.

In the Bible

And I clothed you with embroidered garments ... and I girded you with fine linen, and I covered you with silk.
--EZEKIEL (16:10)
