Giveaway from Goddess Amour!



This months giveaway comes to us from Goddess Amour, Goddess inspired jewelry with a vintage and feminine flair. The lovely owner Kim, has graciously donated one of her beautiful vintage necklaces titled, Blood of Isis. I had the chance to speak with Kim, here's what she had to say.


1. How long have you been crafting beautiful Goddess inspired jewelry?

I have been making beaded jewelry for about 9 years now. It all started when a friend brought her beads over and taught me how to string a necklace. Needless to say, I was hooked, and instantly became a ‘bead junkie’! The rest of what I know, I taught myself. Over the years, I’ve tried my hand at a number of different styles of jewelry before finally finding my niche with the Goddess-inspired jewelry. I’ve sold various pieces locally throughout the years, but most recently I decided to start selling on Etsy.


2. Do you have a favorite product that you make?

I simply love making prayer beads! It is both inspiring and humbling to think that I am crafting something that someone will be using in their worship—a tool to help them connect with the Divine. Also, I find the act of making prayer beads to be a very meditative process, and one that I put my whole self into.


3. Please explain the item you are giving away.
My patron Goddess is Isis, the ancient Egyptian Mother Goddess, and this is the necklace that I created in her honor. I gave it the name: “The Blood of Isis,” after an ancient Egyptian amulet that was often made of red wood, stone or glass.
This necklace features a luscious vintage Lucite bead. This type of bead is known as “moonglow”, for its soft, moon-like sheen. The color is simply stunning, and is a wonderful-cherry red that reminds me of a piece of candy! The bead measures 15mm x 11mm and is topped with a 4mm garnet gemstone and surrounded by antiqued brass bead caps, and finished off with antiqued brass cable chain. The length of the necklace is 18-inches.



Ok so now time for the rules. Go to Kim's shop, find a product that you like, and come back to here to comment on it. Also for extra credit, check out Kim's lovely blog and become a follower. For even more extra credit, follow this blog. The giveaway will last for one week, at which time I will announce the winner.

I hope everyone enjoys exploring the Goddess inspired jewelry by Goddess Amour. Thank you to Kim for her generous donation! Have fun playing!

  1. I really like the look and style of the jewerly and all the time and attention you've done to give us the history and meaning of the stones.
    As far as a favorite piece, it's hard to choose. I particularly like the Athene beads, the Triple Goddess and the Coven string of beads. All beautiful!

  9. Wow! I mean WOW! Everything is just so gorgeous. I especially love Athena's Owl - Goddess Prayer Beads. I started my love for owls after I say the play "The Road to Mecca". Helen, the main character stops attending regular church and starts creating sculptures out of cement and broken glass. The people of her community are horrified and she is shunned by the community. I really relate to Helen as I have left the traditional church and the community I once knew no longer supports me. Anyway, at one point Helen is speaking to the local pastor about her creations and she talks about her first creation, an owl. It was the first time she had missed church. "It was an owl Marius, my first owl".
    I now keep a small glass owl beside my bed. :-)
