Polymer Clay and GemstonePendant
"Isdes"

Isdes was the Egyptian goddess of Heliopolis whose name means, "she comes who is great."
She was a counterpart to the creator god Atum. Normally depicted wearing a scarab beetle on
her head.

I made this colorful pendant with polymer clay and gemstones in Green and Red Aventurine,
Howlite, Coral, Garnet, Crystals, and a beautiful gold colored Scarab detailed with turquoise .
The clay is done with hints of  rainbow iridescence.
The backside has an embedded brass ankh.  

Meanings of the stones and symbols:

Green and Red Aventurine: Aventurine is said to benefit one in all areas of creativity, and
imagination, as well as intellect and mental clarity. Lore says that it enhances prosperity and
brings career success. It is a gentle stone energetically that gives a sense of calm and balance
and enhances happiness. It is a stone of positive outl-look, courage, and inner strength.

Howlite: Spiritually, Howlite is a stone of awareness. It can prepare the user or wearer to
receive wisdom and attunement from the Higher Self and the Divine.
It is a stone of calming, creativity, self-expression and release.

Coral: Coral is of organic origin. Coral can be used to reconnect with nature and its variety of
wonders. Coral also attracts love and prosperity. Creativity and optimism are also qualities that
coral brings out. Emotionally, coral brings inner peace, strength, and understanding of purpose.

Garnet: Garnet is a stone of regeneration and energizing.  Garnet can boost the energy of an
entire system and revitalize it. Garnet is a protective energy stone. Garnet is said to be
excellent for manifestation. It is used to ground one's dreams in reality, bringing abundance,
prosperity, and realization of those dreams.
Emotionally, considered a stone of increasing commitment, honesty, hope, and faith. It is a stone
of positive thoughts which is said to dispel and relieve depression.

Scarab Beetle: This symbolized hope and the restoration of life to the ancient Egyptians. The
ancient Egyptians saw how these beetles (scarabs) lived and emerged from dry ground and used
this as a metaphor for the entombing and resurrection of their mummies. In this way the beetle
became the Egyptian symbol for rebirth, the ability to be reborn.

Ankh was the Symbol of eternal life. The gods are often seen holding an ankh to someone's lips
this is considered to be an offering of "The Breath of Life". The breath you will need in the
afterlife.
