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.

Cat’s Protection I and II

In mythology and folklore, cats are often powerful, playful, and sensual—powerful protectors of those they love and fierce enemies to those who forget that cats have fangs and claws. In ancient Egypt, cat and lioness goddesses were among some of the most beloved and fearsome and housecats were thought to protect homes and families. In Norse mythology, the Vanic deity Freyja (Freya), whose domains were love, sex, and war, was drawn in a wain pulled by sacred cats.

Hopefully they’ll find homes first!

Playful Kitten Bracelet:

DSC_0124

A sterling silver plated kitten-chasing-a-ball-of-yarn charm on a strand of Baltic amber chips, aventurine rounds, citrine nuggets, and lavender quartz rounds, with sterling silver plated faceted glass rondelle spacers.

Measures 7 1/2 inches in diameter and strung on professional quality stretch cord with the knots hidden. Was $24, now $19

I made this bracelet right after welcoming two shelter kittens into my life. I designed it to try to capture in both the fun color palate and in the metaphysical meaning of the stones that curiosity and wonder with which kittens face the world.

Solar Cat:

Inspired by the several times I’ve found cats associated with light and the sun in various sources of lore and mythology: in particular, with Ra and many of the Goddesses who have been named as Eyes of Ra and with Freyja who is associated with growth and sensuality and has a chariot drawn by cats.

A sterling silver-plated cat charm is the centerpiece on a strand of citrine nuggets, bright orange Czech glass beads, amber-gold crackle beads, and small faceted silver-plated glass rondelle spacers.

Measures 7 1/2 inches in diameter and strung on high-quality stretch cord. Was $23, now $18.
