I make all my beads myself, even the tiny ones! Necklaces can contain up to 100 beads, each one melted, shaped, annealed, cleaned, polished, graded and then threaded. Made with love and fire.
Amphitrite, sea-goddess and wife of Poseidon, was the personification of the sea itself (saltwater). I think this may be the most beautiful necklace I’ve made so far. Made from a translucent blue and green glass, it seems to radiate sea energy. Set on stainless steel cable with sterling silver clasp.
Anuket, Goddess of the Nile
This beautiful necklace contains 73 beads made from four different colors of amber glass. Some of the beads have discs made by adding molten glass and pressing it into a circle with a special tool. This also gives each disc a unique ‘fingerprint’ pattern. The rich, earthy amber colors remind me of ancient silt, and the disc beads and arrangement are early Egyptian in style. A stunning, goddess-like adornment!
Anuket is the goddess of the Nile river at the start of the Nile’s journey through Egypt, and in nearby regions of Nubia.
When the Nile started its annual flood, the Festival of Anuket began. People threw coins, gold, jewelry, and precious gifts into the river in thanks for her life-giving water, and returning benefits derived from the wealth provided by her fertility.
Sekhmet Goddess of Fire
This beautiful necklace contains 77 beads made from four different colors of red glass. Some of the beads have discs made by adding molten glass and pressing it into a circle with a special tool. This also gives each disc a unique ‘fingerprint’ pattern. The deep red colours are full of fire , and the disc beads and arrangement remind me of early Egyptian in style. A stunning, goddess-like adornment!
Sekhmet was considered the daughter of the sun god, Ra, and was among the more important of the goddesses who acted as the vengeful manifestation of Ra’s power, the Eye of Ra. Sekhmet was said to breathe fire, and the hot winds of the desert were likened to her breath.
