Most days I wear my Shemsu-Ankh scarab and a silver chain with two pendants: an ankh-djed-was and a Bast cat. But I'll occasionally wear something else--at the moment, usually my azurite necklace if I need "cooling" or my "stalking beauty" necklace if I particularly want to celebrate joy-in-life. (Actually, both of those are Bast's, but She lets me take them out of the shrine and wear them. ^_^)

Senebty,

Shefyt

When I am at work I wear semiprecious stone necklaces I have made and dedicated to my Names because they look like everyday jewellery and I dont want to draw attention to myself and invite religious inquiry.

On my down time I wear a myriad of Egyptian and Greek jewellery but they arent prodominately displayed as I got over pagans and new agers touching my pendants (especially my A'set or Hekate pendants) without permission.

I also wear my Gods of the Year bracelets everyday as each of them looks like everyday jewellery even though they have special significance for me.

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 have a medium large and rather broad silver Ankh necklace pendant with hieroglyphs on it's front. It's fastened to a black double cord.

I also have a simple black Ankh tattooed on my right wrist.
(I got that one when I decided to join this faith and became a member of the forums in November last year.)

Other than that, I have nothing, but I plan to tattoo my future Shemsu name somewhere neat and respectable, probably the nape of the neck.

i think i was partially inspired by this thread to obtain a new amulet a few days ago!  unfortunately i don't have a picture yet, but this one is of Sekhmet and is silver, about two inches tall, and has a base and can actually also stand, so She's even like a miniature statue, suitable for wearing or as part of a pocket shrine!  :)

It irriates me to no end when people do that.
What I find worse though in the pagan community is the "automatic hug". I don't know these people...and even if I did I may never hug them. I have only hugged my best friend of 6 years once....when she was getting a divorce. I'm not a touchy feely person...and it drives me crazy to have people all up in my personal bubble.

Speaking of pocket shrines... I picked up a necklace last month that is a glass vial filled with watch gears and Swarovski crystals on a black velvet ribbon (steampunk eye candy yum... :) ). This particular piece isn't Kemetic, but when I was reading your post Kathleen as quoted by Pharess just now, I thought you were saying your necklace was a pocket shrine. My vial necklace was the first thing I thought of--one could do a similar thing with small charms representative of one's Parents & Beloveds perhaps, or the Gods of the Year. I am now fascinated by this idea... :D

I think this is an awesome idea, too. ^_^  And also speaking of pocket (or jewelry) shrines, I love this--scroll up a page to see the naos they describe. I wants one! Though I don't usually wear pendants that big.... :grin:

I have a silver Eye of Ra pendant that I wear occasionally.

I'm not really big on wearing religious jewellery, though.

I wear tons of stuff :)
But generally I wear one of two chains one is a ankh with a scarab in the middle of it and the other is an ankh with udjat eyes on both sides of it  :)

I also wear everyday without fail, my Wesir ring.

I would totally wear that!  We need more reproduction artists that will cater to our whims. :)
