Lg. 1.25" Magi Ankh Pentacle
A personal note about these handcrafted Sterling Silver talismanic jewelry pieces: In 1985 we met Fred and Jill of Magi Crafts and were very impressed with their sterling silver pentacles, many with bezel-set with smooth cabachon gemstones or prong-set faceted jewels. These magickal pieces were carefully and lovingly woven by them and their best trained assistants. The care they took to work during the phases of the Moon best suited for the intentions of each piece was very important to us. One weekend we joined them on the roof of their studio for a Lunar blessing of all the pieces that had been made from the time Diana's Bow could be seen in the night sky through the Full of the Moon. This was powerful Witchcraft and Richard and I were honored to represent this company. We became the exclusive wholesale distributors of this collection for decades, providing these light- filled pentacles and amulets to stores across America so that they could find their way into many neighborhoods of Spiritual seekers. The collection has long been retired and these are what we have to provide as long as supplies last. Blessed Be
The Ankh is one of the most ancient symbols of Egypt, often seen carried by a multitude of the Egyptian gods in tomb paintings and inscriptions and worn by Egyptians as an amulet, one of the most recognizable symbols from ancient Egypt. Known as "the key of life", it possibly dates from the Early Dynastic Period (c. 3150 - 2613 BCE). The symbol is an Egyptian hieroglyph for "life" or "breath of life" (`nh = ankh) and, as the Egyptians believed that one's earthly journey was only part of an eternal life, the ankh symbolizes both mortal existence and the afterlife. In tomb paintings and inscriptions, deities such as Anubis or Isis are often seen placing the ankh against the lips of the soul in the afterlife to revitalize it and open that soul to a life after death. The goddess Ma'at is frequently depicted holding an ankh in each hand and the god Osiris grasps the ankh in a number of tomb paintings. Wear for attunement to Egyptian Mysteries.
