|Polymer Clay and Gemstone Necklace & Healing/Meditation/Chakra/Reiki Tool
Ankh - "Hathor"
The Ankh, also known as key of life, was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character
that read "life". It represents the concept of eternal life.
Hathor was the daughter of Ra and the patron goddess of women, love, beauty,
pleasure, and music. She is depicted in three forms; as a cow, as a woman with the
ears of a cow, and as a woman wearing the headdress of a cow’s horns. She was the
consort of Horus, and her name actually means “House of Horus.” She had many
temples the most famous of which is at Dendara.
I made this piece on the slightly larger scale. It is a statement piece when wearing as
a necklace. But I designed it this way as the cords can be removed from the Ankh
and so that it can be used as a talisman, an altar piece, and a meditation and healing
tool as well!
I made this Amkh with polymer clay. I hand painted it and added stones representing
the Chakra. Amethyst, Lapis, Turquoise, Aventurine, Citrine, Carnelian, and Garnet.
Each stone represents a part of the Chakra.
Violet (Amethyst stone) = Crown - Personal identification with Infinite. Oneness with
God. Peace. Wisdom
Indigo (Lapis stone) = Third Eye - Clearing subconscious to channel intuition.
Balanced state of mind. See divine perfection in all things. Devotion.
Blue (Turquoise stone) = Throat - Ability to verbalize. Expressing truth through
power of the spoken word.
Green (Aventurine stone) = Heart - Release emotionally suppressed trauma.
Soul/Heart consciousness. Expressing love in action.
Yellow (Citrine stone) = Solar Plexus - Assimilation experience. Digestion. Positive
use of personal power. Manifest goals.
Orange (Carnelian stone) = Sacral - Utilization of creative forces into all aspects of
being. High soul procreation. Direct self toward devotion.
Red (Garnet stone) = Base - Ground spirit forces in body. Gain ability to work
lovingly on the physical plane.
I hand made and designed the pendant and embellished with the gemstones listed
above. The clay is white with details done in black paint. The finished piece was then
given a clear coat to seal in the paint. The backside is plain.
The Ankh has a beautiful facted Quartz Crystal point at the bottom. This is a natural
quartz crystal and as such, has natural inclusions inside of the crystal.
Ankh measures 5 and 1/16 inches tall from top of Ankh to bottom point of quartz
crystal, or 128 millimeters. The Ankh measures 2 and 7/16 inches across at widest
point or 63 millimeters. Ankh measures about 3/8 of an inch thick.
Ankh comes with the colorful suede and yarn cords as shown, which measure about
17 inches long on each side, so a total wearable size of 34 inches, which can be tied
anywhere to adjust for length.
I cleansed this piece with a Sage smudge ceremony. I filled it with Earth energy in a
beautiful ceremony and set these intentions with it through prayer.
I also placed the "Ohm" resonance into the piece with an Ohm tuning fork.
"Ohm" is the vibrational sound of the universe.
My wish is that this piece will be drawn to the person that needs it in their life at
this time to send healing and love out into our world.
