Ankh - "Ma'at"
Polymer Clay and Gemstone Necklace & Healing/Meditation/Chakra/Reiki Tool
The Ankh, also known as key of life, was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that read
"life". It represents the concept of eternal life.
Ma'at was the goddess of truth and justice, embodying the essential harmony of the universe. Her
power regulated the seasons and the movement of the stars. Ma’at was the patron of justice and
the symbol of ancient Egyptian ethics.
Ma’at was the ultimate judge in the afterlife, and the heart of the newly deceased was weighed
against her feather in the Hall of Two Truths.
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 Ankh 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.
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
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 4 and 5/8 inches tall from top of Ankh to bottom point of quartz crystal, or 117
millimeters. The Ankh measures 2 and 1/4 inches across at widest point or 58 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.
