BELOVED BASTET is handcrafted and truly one-of-a-kind! BELOVED BASTET was created with a genuine cat skull that was bought from a science education and lab supply company. For those who have been following my work, my cat skull amulets are very limited due to my search to find suitable skulls from professional, ethical sources. This cat skull amulet features two coyote teeth "horns", Mookaite Jasper "eyes" and a genuine Carnelian "nose." The skull is decorated with sculpted spirals, leaves, and adorned with Swarovski gems. The cat skull is also decorated with Druzy Agates, Druzy Carnelian, Smoky Quartz, a Gold-Rutile Quartz cabochon, and a Carnelian cabochon fittingly placed on the "third eye" of the cat skull. Hand painted by me, the skull has an amazing rich shimmer that goes from gold to metallic bronze. It has also been sealed with a clear coating. The necklace itself is layered with dark oxidized brass chains, Art Nouveau connectors, genuine Hematoid Quartz beads, faceted Mookaite Jasper beads, an African Carnelian focal bead, a fossil Ammonite, sparkling iridescent faceted beads, and rhinestone spacers. BELOVED BASTET is part amulet, part totem protector and all fantasy! This is not your everyday necklace and would look fabulous for that special ritual, event or masquerade!
