This winged Bastet pendant is a beautiful piece for anyone who loves this goddess, or just a fan of Egyptian cat pendants! Available in .925 sterling silver or antique bronze, she is based on a pewter pendant someone brought to me to remake in sterling silver.  Large but lightweight, she is quite the statement piece! This pendant is made to order, but believe me, it's worth the wait!

Crafted with meticulous detail, this Egyptian cat pendant features the graceful form of Bastet with wings outstretched, creating a captivating silhouette. This handmade pendant is designed to capture the spirit of this revered goddess, known for her associations with home, fertility, and the protection of the household.

Details:

  • Pendant Dimensions: She measures 7cm long with the bail and 4cm wide. The pendant is 1cm deep and hollowed out in the back, which is textured. The bail is cast onto the tip of the tail and the opening is large enough to pass a 5mm wide chain.

Both are free of nickel, zinc or cadmium, which are common metal allergens, which can cause rashes and sores. For more info on bronze, read my blog post or consult my FAQ.

Bastet was worshiped in Bubastis in Lower Egypt, and was depicted as a cat, representing a gentler aspect of the protector goddess Skemet. As protector of Lower Egypt, she was seen as defender of the king, and consequently of the sun god, Ra. Bastet was also a goddess of Goddess of protection, cats, perfume/ointments, fertility, children, music, the arts, and warfare, pregnancy and childbirth, possibly because of the fertility of the domestic cat.

Domestic cats were increasingly worshiped and considered sacred. When they died, they were embalmed, coffined and buried in cat cemeteries. The domestic cat was regarded as living incarnation of Bastet who protects the household against vermin such as mice, rats (which threatened key food supplies), and snakes—especially cobras. Cats in ancient Egypt were highly revered and the personification of Bastet. Cats of royalty were, in some instances, known to be dressed in golden jewelry and were allowed to eat from the plates of their owners.

Embrace the allure of ancient Egypt with our Winged Bastet Pendant—a wearable tribute to protection, beauty, and the timeless grace of one of history's most revered goddesses. Gift it to someone special, inviting them to carry a piece of ancient wisdom and feline elegance wherever they go.
