I usually wear my Ankh, or a Lapis Lazuli pendant (Since it's a very important in ancient Kemet), but I have a small Khepera pendant that I wear, plus a Khepera ring with clear quartz in it.

yeah, it's funny, but right after i had posted here about having pendants that weren't Kemetic, i got a strong nudge to get one that unquestionably *is*.  ;)

Since I see so many religious people wear symbols of their faith (such as crosses, pentagrams, stars of david, etc.), it got me wondering what the people of KO like to wear as a symbol of their beliefs.  The first thing that comes to mind is the ankh, but I know there are so many symbols to choose from.

Would anyone like to share?


You know, I went to Dragon*Con 11 years ago, before I was even pagan, much less KO, and I wanted to buy a piece of Egyptian jewelry. I didn't want an ankh, because that's what all the goths were covered in, and I wanted to differentiate myself as an Egyptophile. So I bought a tiny silver udjat pendant on a chain. I still have and treasure it, especially now as a daughter of Sekhmet and knowing the full symbolism of the udjat. And this is the necklace I get the most comments about. Other netjer-related jewelry I wear:

Pewter Sekhmet and Hethert pendants (I wear these the most lately)
A silver Aset ring
A malachite scarab pendant
A Tehuti silver pendant
turquoise, lapis, and carnelian jewelry, not Kemtic in theme, but mostly worn for Mom.

Someday I will get my silver Jackal pendant to the jewelry store for repair; that pendant has a LOT of sentimental value for me as well.

Interestingly, I still don't wear ankhs, not because I don't like them, I just haven't found any that scream "wear me!"

Picture!  

I can't wear a lot of jewelry at work for safety and hygienic reasons. I wear my tyet knot almost every day. No one knows what it is, some people think it's a stick figure of a person.

Outside of work I sometimes wear one of my Aset pendants. The large winged one actually has a lot of detail, it's hard to see in the picture. The tall standing figure can be a tiny statue, too. The small head is Hethert (from Egypt) but I call Her Amenti.

I hate that... I had someone, not particularly pagan or anything, just walk up to me, grab my necklace, and say "OOH that's pretty!" I was taken aback - that's a little bit of a personal space violation in addition to being weird.

I think that is the absolute height of rudeness. How dare ANYONE touch you or your jewelry or clothing without getting your permission!  I have been known to take a step back, and give them the most withering look I can muster whenever someone wants to touch me or something I am wearing without asking if it is ok first. I am not the least bit shy about telling them what is what. As in, "You just Do. Not. DO. That!"

Usually that breaks them of the habit fairly quickly. ;)

It's wonderful to have what you are wearing admired, but the adage, "lookie but no touchie" definitely applies!

Maybe...it's the sacred cariboo!

As for inappropriate grabby-hands: people don't tend to touch me or my stuff. I think I can definitely project a "keep 10 feet back at all times" vibe - being touched in the wrong place hurts so I unconsciously guard myself.

That was the first Kemetic piece of jewelry I ever got. Hardly wear it now but still quite enamored of it.

this looks very similar to my new Sekhmet amulet; perhaps it was made by the same artist??

and if you'll forgive my ignorance- what is a tyet knot, and what is its significance as a Kemetic symbol?

Kathleen, of the lower row, it's the one on the right. I'm Wedjbai could tell you more of its meaning than I could though.

I'm sure you could explain it just as well as I could, Zat :)

A tyet knot is an amulet sacred to Aset, and is sometimes called "the blood of Aset", "the girdle of Aset", or "the knot of Aset". Traditionally the amulets were made out of red stone (like carnelian, for example) and put around the necks of the dead.

One of the spells from the Book of Coming Forth By Day says: "You possess your blood, Isis, you possess your power, Isis, you possess your magic, Isis. The amulet is a protection for this Great One, which will drive off anyone who would perform a criminal act against him." The blood is a reference to the tyet knot.

I think at one point the knot was also associated with Hethert; I have another pendant from one of Hemet's Egypt auctions that has a tyet knot topped with Hethert's head.

To me the knot represents Aset's protection and Her magical abilities.

No, you did better, I wasn't aware of even that much. ;) Thank you for the lesson!
