This is an entirely handcrafted Egyptian Goddess necklace made from kiln-fired Egyptian faience beads. The techniques and artistry I use are precisely those found in the magnificent ancient Egyptian faience artwork created some 5,000 years ago. The sintered-quartz ceramic I create is made from exactly the same type of minerals the Egyptians drew from the sands of their deserts and the silts of the Nile.
The warm neutral tones of Wadi Sand playing against the verdant Wadj Green of this Egyptian Goddess necklace is meant to evoke a calming energy of healing and wellness. The ancient Egyptian word Wadj (green) by definition means "to flourish" or "to be healthy". The amulet is in the design of the Egyptian Goddess Hathor. This is a solid Sterling Silver amulet. This Egyptian Goddess necklace is 15-3/4 inches long, falling between a choker and princess length. Please note the images shown are of one particular Egyptian Goddess necklace, and are for display purposes only. The Egyptian Goddess necklace you order will undoubtedly have slight variations of the variegated tones and shapes within the beads and amulet. The is the nature of Egyptian Faience and metal casting, and consequently part of it’s beauty and allure.
The most famous Egyptian Goddess of Ancient Egypt is Hathor. Known as the Goddess of Beauty; yet her’s is never a vain or shallow beauty. Rather she is assured of her own allure and grace and loved all that was alluring and graceful around her. Hathor is known as the “Mistress of Life” and is the embodiment of love, joy, romance, music, dance and celebration. Hathor’s cult is directly connected with the fragrance myrrh; considered most precious by Ancient Egyptians and to embody all of the wonderful qualities of the female sex.
This Egyptian Goddess necklace is from the “Ka Collection”. The Ka is a person’s life force. When a body was prepared for the tomb, the ancient Egyptians would bestow great offerings inside the burial chamber to feed the Ka in the afterlife. The Egyptian word Ka means “double”, and is typically inscribed as a hieroglyph of uplifted arms, designating the protecting divine spirit of a person. I strive to evoke the duality of this spirit in the designs.
