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.

Eye of the Sky

Just listed today! This necklace was inspired by the Eye of Horus/Eye of Ra in Egyptian mythology. The stylized eye (right often representing Ra and solar qualities while the left represented Horus and lunar qualities) was a powerful ancient protection amulet and symbol of the physical manifestation of the God’s power.

Ancient Egyptian-Inspired Candles

In addition to jewelry, I also design and make soy container candles. My candles are 100% soy wax, hand-dyed and scented with pure essential oils, in a sealable glass jar. I use wood wicks (which produce a campfire-like crackle) and decorate them with glitter that catches the light during burning. I currently have several candles inspired by ancient Egypt.


The Nile:

A tribute to the life-giving waters of the Nile River that sustained Ancient Egypt. A lapis-blue candle scented with Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Bergamot, and Myrrh and decorated with blue and gold glitter. Available in three sizes: 4oz, 7oz, and 11oz options. $11-17

Heka:

Named for the ancient Egyptian form of ritual magick known as heka. This is a vivid red candle scented with Patchouli Dark, Frankincense, Sweet Orange, and Sandalwood and decorated with red and gold glitter. Available in three sizes: 4oz, 7oz, and 11oz options. $11-17

Eye of Ra:

Inspired by the Eyes of Ra, powerful Goddesses including Bast, Sekhmet, Wadjet, Tefnut, and others. A golden-orange candle scented with Cassia Bark, Cedarwood, Frankincense, and Atlas Cedar and decorated with burnt orange, red, and gold glitter. Available in three sizes: 4oz, 7oz, and 11oz options. $11-17

Embalming Chamber:

A special-edition candle inspired by the embalming chambers of ancient Egypt, where the dead were prepared for their entrances into the Afterlife. A black candle in a sealable glass jar that evokes the shape of canopic jars, which held the organs of the deceased. Scented with Frankincense, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, and Myrrh and decorated with gold glitter. This candle is available in a single size: 5oz. $15
