Bedroom Shrines Update #2

Since my last State of the Shrines post has been making the rounds on tumblr recently, I thought I’d post some more photos of what I’ve done in my room now. I’ve got most of the work done, bar one Ivar shelf in the corner, and the bookshelves over the bed, and hanging a few final pieces (like picture frames etc), and then it’ll be done. So this isn’t an official State of the Shrines for 2018 yet, but it’s progress. I’ll do a proper one once everything’s done, bc there are a few shrines I’m planning for the bookshelves so it’s not done until they’re up there.

Be aware that everything is still a work in progress, and I’m still figuring out how I want everything to be, so things may not stay this way as I finish everything off, but it’s working for now. I may still decide to redo things, or change things around, and I’m still sorting out how I want the altar by the window to function, since both Mary and Aphrodite’s shrines are going to be on the bookshelves. So we’ll see how that one settles in. So yeah, there are a few odd statues that are just hanging around, not quite in the right place yet, but for the most part, it’s working for me.

I have a lot of photos, so bear with me, but see under the cut for what I’ve got so far. ❤

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.
