Necklace is made from White Shell Discs, Lapis Lazuli, and Amethyst; with a Wire-Wrapped Beach Pebble Pendant and Hand-hammered Copper Wire.

The Ancient Egyptians believed Satis was the goddess who caused the Nile floods. Her name means ‘she who shoots forth’, referring to the annual flooding of the river.
One of her titles was ‘She Who Runs Like An Arrow’ and her symbols were the arrow and the running river.
Necklace is made from Quartz Points, Amethysts, African Map Jasper, Turquoise and Hand-Hammered Copper Wire.
