Sobek Devotional Update: Last Minute Submission Requests

Okay, since I meant to do this a couple of weeks ago, but Life etc, and I’ve had a couple of queries today about submissions, I just wanted to let you know that, yes, the book is going ahead, and I am still working on it. I haven’t quite decided on the cover art yet, and there’s a couple of little things I need to fix up, but it’s going ahead.

I am currently compiling the manuscript, so if you still have any last-minute submissions, you’ve got til Jan 31st to get them in. I might be able to extend that by a couple of weeks if you really need it, but I would like to finalise the manuscript by Feb 14, so I can’t guarantee anything I get past that date will make it in. It probably won’t. So don’t hang about if you still want to submit something!

Anyone wanting to make late submissions, please email sobekdevotionalATgmail.com to let me know I need to wait on you, and what you are planning to submit, so I can pencil in where it might fit as I work on finishing the manuscript. This is absolutely your last chance to get something included in the devotional, so please get in touch sooner rather than later.

New: Pagan Prayer Beads – Egyptian Goddess Nut and Her Children – Lapis Lazuli, Moonstone, Goldstone

Set of beads for Nut and Her Children, Wesir, Set, Heru, Aset, and Nebethet. Made with lapis lazuli, moonstone, and goldstone.

Set of beads for Nut and Her Children, Wesir, Set, Heru, Aset, and Nebethet. Made with lapis lazuli, moonstone, and goldstone.

This set came to be because of the blue tassel. I ordered a mixed bag of little tassels from eBay, and once it finally arrived, there was just one of these dark blue tassels amongst all the other coloured tassels. Nut wanted it, and asked for some beads. So I made this set for Her, and Her children. It seemed the right time, since I’m coming up to Wep Ronpet, and the Days Upon The Year, which honour the Children of Nut and Geb.

This is a set of prayer beads for the Egyptian goddess Nut, the goddess of the starry heavens, and Her five children. It is made with lapis lazuli, moonstone, and goldstone 6mm beads, with a dark blue tassel to finish it off.

The lapis beads are a deep blue, echoing the dark starry sky that is the vault of Nut. The five sets of goldstone and moonstone beads represent the five children of Nut and Geb: Wesir/Orisis, Set, Heru/Horus, Aset/Isis, and Nebethet/Nepthys.

This is a perfect set of beads for any Kemetic devotee of Nut and any of Her children, and will make a beautiful addition to any shrine.

It measures approximately 25cm long, and the final knot is glued for added strength.

Set of beads made with an ammonite pendant, black onyx, tiger eye, and moss agate beads.

Set of beads made with an ammonite pendant, black onyx, tiger eye, and moss agate beads.

This is the other set for Amun I found tucked away in a box. I think I put them away because I wasn’t sure I liked the designs, but once I got them out again, I think they’re fine, and Amun doesn’t seem to mind, so. They’re staying as they are.

This is a small set of prayer beads for the Egyptian god Amun. The ammonite fossil charm resembles an ear, echoing the votive ears that were found in some of Amun’s temples, where people could go to leave their requests with the god, knowing He would hear them.

This seet of beads is made with alternating black onyx and tiger eye, along with four lage moss agate beads. They measure 18cm long, and the final knit is glued for added strength.

I had actually forgotten I’d made this set, along with another ammonite set of beads, but now they’re up and ready to be bought. Amun liked the ammonite pun, hence they are His. He also wanted the skulls. I have no idea why. I guess this is what I get for letting gods design Their prayer beads.
