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.
This necklace features an antique bronze udjet pendant on a strand of carnelian, lapis lazuli, sunstone, and glittery brass-plated glass faceted rondelles. Finished with an antique brass clasp. $48
Inspired by the Sun, which in every mythology I’ve studied is a sacred power of life, light, energy, creation, protection, and new hope. Particularly as the sun returns after the rainy, cloudy season that was been winter in my area, it seemed an appropriate time to celebrate solar power and beauty.
A tricolored blown-glass ampoule and two dichroic glass drops on a long double stranded necklace: the longer is citrine, carnelian, and hematite, and the shorter is hematite and glittering goldstone. $85
