The winged beetle supporting the sun is a famous motif in the art of ancient Egypt, representing the sun God Khepera (or Khepri) who is responsible for the rebirth of the sun at dawn.

A large (1 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches) antique brass winged beetle adorns two (non-similar) strands of grade A lapis lazuli, carnelian, sunstone, and pyrite. Strung on high-quality beading wire and fastened with a matching lobster claw clasp. Measures 20 inches in circumference. $80

Bast Cartouche Necklace

Inspired by the Goddess Bast (Bastet) of ancient Egypt! She began as the warlike lioness protector of Lower Egypt, but later became the more familiar house cat and protector of the home. Cats were sacred to her and many pets were mummified and placed in her care after death. She was also a Goddess of fertility, sex, and safe travel.

Eye of the Sun

The udjat is one of the best and widest known symbols from Egypt. This necklace is inspired by the power of the Eye of Horus and Eye of Ra in Ancient Egyptian/Kemetic mythology. Traditionally the left and right eyes, respectively, these symbols represented the personifications of power by the Gods Horus and Ra. Often associated with the moon (Horus) and the sun (Ra). In the case of Ra, this power was often personified by other deities, like Sekhmet, Bast(et), Hathor, Wadjet, Mut, Nekhbet, and others.

Two New Egyptian/Kemetic Candles

Just listed today! Two new scented soy candles inspired by Ancient Egypt and the Kemetic pantheon.

Ta-Mera (The Beautiful Land):

DSC_0671

A blue candle scented with pure essential oils of neroli, Moroccan blue chamomile, thuja, sandalwood, and lavender spike—a sweet, fresh, slightly fruity scent. Ta-Mera, which translates as “the Beautiful Land,” was one of the names the Ancient Egyptians gave their homeland; this candle captures that loveliness and life-giving fertility of the Nile Valley. Dusted with blue, green, and gold glitters.

Netjer:

DSC_0676

A sandy-colored candle scented with pure essential oils of neroli, frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh, and Moroccan blue chamomile—a complex, exotic scent. Inspired by the Egyptian/Kemetic pantheon of Gods. Dusted with blue, turquoise, red, and gold glitters.

Both candles come in sealable class jars and are available in my usual three sizes: 4 oz ($11), 7 oz ($14), and 11 oz ($17).

Lord of the Red Land

A necklace inspired by Set (Seth), the Egyptian/Kemetic God of the desert, storms, and in some cases the sort of destruction that helps keep everything in balance and support new life and growth. While perhaps best known for his contending with Horus the Younger following the death of Osiris and so often painted as a villain, throughout much of Egyptian history and mythology (especially earlier sources) Set was honored as Ra’s nighttime champion, the one with the strength even in the darkness to fight off the forces of chaos.

Lord of the Red Land Necklace:

This necklace consists of an oval crackle amber agate pendant, accented by black obsidian, on a double stranded necklace. The first strand has red brecciated jasper, red sesame jasper, white howlite, black obsidian, and black onyx chips. The second strand is black obsidian, red brecciated jasper, and pink feldspar. Overall, the color palate is one of dusky reddish hues worthy of the Lord of the Desert. $52

As always, hold and layaway are available for this piece in accordance with the policies here. Just convo me on etsy and I’ll be happy to work with you to set up a hold/installment plan.
