This unique, handcrafted prayer bead charm is created from 29 fire agate, chrysocolla, copper-colored hematite, and serpentine crystals, with gold metal star and crescent moon charms. Each 8-10mm bead has been meticulously hand-knotted on waxed red hemp cord to provide the perfect amount of space between the crystals.
This piece is intuitively designed by Priestess Auset and has been ritually and magickally dedicated to the Goddess ISHTAR.
ISHTAR, the Mesopotamian (Akkadian/Babylonian) Goddess of Love and War, is often syncretized with the Sumerian Goddess Inanna. Ishtar is mainly associated with sexual love, divine compassion, war and battles, and royalty. She is the Queen Goddess, and Her power is best invoked during the full moon when She envelops lovers in fertile, abundant energy. Her role as guardian and war goddess is due to Her volatile temper and protective nature, as well as Her desire to right wrongs against women and Her practitioners.
