Tears of Osiris

Howlite, Silver Spiral Beads, Snowflake Obsidian Beads and Pendant with Silver Bail and Toggle Clasp.
Love Howlite and found Snowflake Obsidian set it off perfectly. To me the combination symbolized dark and light, yin and the yang, birth and re-birth - sacred balance. These two combinations connected with Osiris the Ancient Egyptian God of the Duat for me as both are calming and helps one reach inner peace.

Featured Piece - The Rose of Khepra

This delicate 18 in necklace is made of Rhodonite beads with Sterling Silver tube and 2 mm round beads. The pendant is a simple Pewter Cartouche of Khepra Scarab with Sun.

Rhodonite - derived from Greek word Rhodon for Rose - a perfect description for this lovely delicate pink stone shot with black. To me this stone reminds me of the beautiful pink horizon just before the sun rises. A perfect link to Khepra.
Khepra - "to come into being" scarab sun deity of Ancient Egypt - deity of birth, renewal, and resurrection - the personification of transformation.

Amethyst Divine Bliss

Lovely amethyst custom order sent off this past week  - this is such a rich, spiritual stone and coupled with silver makes one feel divine.  Amethyst is my personal favorite - even though I love ALL gemstones, amethyst has a special place.  The deep purple resonates to my deep secret self, enhancing my intuition, increasing my inspiration and bringing me closer to the divine - my spiritual bliss stone.  I hope my customer find it equally lovely and compelling as it makes its forever home with her.

Left Eye of Horus

My 2nd bronze Eye of Horus (the left eye) - before and after pics below.  I am definitely pleased with the way the bronzclay fired.  I really enjoyed making this piece.  I made a wonderful right Eye of Ra (or Horus) as a custom piece and cant wait to post those pics too - meanwhile the test piece came out wonderfully - has  that "found at an archaeological site look and feel".

 After firing - nothing but bronze

Before - looks like clay

We Remember

Today we remember the events from 10 years ago, how could we ever forget something branded into our very hearts with pain.  As each of you can  recall, I clearly remember where I was and what I was doing when I received the horrific news - that entire day is etched in my memory.  This artist personally lost friends and loved ones at the twin towers and the Pentagon.

Today we commemorate those we lost, those who served and fell, those who sacrificed themselves that a third incident not happen, and those who served and live with the horror first hand even now.  Let our souls  come together as we honor and remember - never forgetting.

My new Isis commissioned by me for my website, studio and biz cards.  A wonderful rendition of Isis by a very talented 19 yr old artist, I was connected to on DeviantArt.  Alysia Harris her DeviantArt studio is MyWorld1.  Beautiful work - love my Isis.

Eye of Horus Earrings

While waiting on my Eye of Horus bronzclay to sinter in the kiln this afternoon I worked with some copper and silver poly clay I had previously baked.  More Eye of Horus creations - earrings with Howlite and Carnelian - I can envision a priestess of Hathor wearing these as she goes about her temple duties - perhaps preparing for the festival of the Sacred Marriage - a festival celebrating the holy union of the Goddess Hathor to the God Horus.
