or in original more likely Aset (Ancient Greek: Ἶσις) was a goddess in Ancient Egyptian religious beliefs, whose worship spread throughout the Greco-Roman world. She was worshiped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the matron of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artisans, and the downtrodden, and she listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats, and rulers. Isis is the goddess of motherhood, magic and fertility. As soon as I finished this pendant, I immediately saw an "Egyptian look." I shaped and hammered a pyramid frame from copper wire. It has rich and deep colors of reds, gold, green and yellow. I decorated it with red faceted glass beads, copper and bronze colored seed beads, mother of pearl, citrine, jade and quartz crystal. I added a natural quartz crystal that I coiled and lace netted to the pyramid. It measures approximately 3 in. x 1 3/4 in.
