Potnia Theròn Goddess Coin Necklace

The last Goddess of the Collection Two Coin Necklaces has been released! This Goddess is for all animal lovers! 

One of the oldest Goddesses known, Potnia Theròn. Known as the Queen of the Animal Kingdom, her name literally translates to “The Animal Queen.” She kept the fine balance of the animal ecosystem in check. Any imbalance was dealt with swiftly by her powerful hand. She is the one we turn to for help with sick animals, unjust cruelty to animals, and aid in their environment. Re-invoking her ancient name in this new world will empower her cause. Let’s face it, my dear friends, we need it. We need it to advance to the next level. Humans are no longer in the dark ages. Our fur and scale friends need love, care, and a planet that is equally their home too. Potnia Theròn shows us the truth, they are a part of us more than we ever will understand. She has many names and is considered one of the ancient elder gods. A force of nature. 

Her crystal is a protective Smoky Quartz.

Gula Goddess Coin Necklace

Gratitude and love to all healthcare providers! The first known Goddess of healing and patroness of doctors, nurses, healing arts, and medical practices. Gula was the first caregiver, an aspect of every Goddess and every human. She was considered a divine physician, showing us that the power to heal is knowledge of the body and healthcare. She not only helped heal but showed humans how to heal the body. The power to heal is within us all, but there are some who choose to shine highly in this facet. Making the healing arts their chosen profession. Gula was known as “The Great Doctoress” and the first of this profession. Later being turned into a Male God or blatantly replaced by other newer Male Gods of Medicine in surrounding regions… still Gula was not fully erased. 

The Patroness of the Healing Arts and Medical Practitioners is experiencing a revival. Her magic comes with less mystery and more text. Humans are just rediscovering her powerful teachings. 

Her crystal is a healing Clear Quartz.

Ītzpāpālōtl The Obsidian Butterfly Goddess Coin Necklace

Ītzpāpālōtl, The Obsidian Butterfly is a Goddess that I have been working with for a few years with my friend Wiki. She is writing a book with an extensive collection about Central and South American Goddesses and their lore. Hopefully, her book will release later next year under her full name; Ahuic “Wiki” Mora. Please keep an eye out for it and I will also post when her book releases as well for anyone interested. 

I love talking about Goddesses that have not seemed to make it into the popular mainstream. It seems that there is an outpour of what is popular, but a trickle-down effect of what is not. 

The Obsidian Butterfly has been watered down and pretty much lost to the workings of the internet. It shouldn’t surprise any of us how generic the info is with the very “copy and paste” feeling you encounter when researching on the web. My friend Wiki has spent many years in her native land of Central Mexico, not to mention travels into South America, to collect stories of Central and South American Goddesses. I am so excited for the upcoming book release of this beautiful Goddess with a fresh perspective on her and her energy. 

The Obsidian Butterly is about transformation and rebirth. She is a soul eater, and this is not a bad or scary thing. She eats the old and done to recreate and give birth to their new form. There will be a series on this Goddess on Evil Pawn Jewelry’s Patreon page by Wiki this summer. The series will post to the Quartz Tier. 

Once these coins hit net proceeds EPJ is giving donations to Raices and to Wiki so she can continue her work in collecting and preserving these stories before they are gone forever. This is such important work. Funds will also help her with her future website. Thank you for all who have contributed. 

The crystals of Ītzpāpālōtl are Obsidian, Amethyst and Bumblebee Jasper.

Elen of the Ways Goddess Coin Necklace

Elen is not only the pathfinder in the physical world, she is the Goddess of the Aisling. She can wave her staff and clear the way for a new road. Like our beloved deer friends, she too possesses the gift to see the ways through the trees. The paths the human eye is unable to see. She finds a way. 

Elen of the Ways can guide you through your dreams and help you pave those same roads in the waking hours. The deer is the great navigator through terrain that is mapped in paths we do not see, but the deer can see them all. Whether you are going into the dream world or navigating this waken state space… You can find it all, just follow the deer.

Nisaba Goddess Coin Necklace

Nothing could mean more than a female scribe, especially to a female writer. She oversees all humans no matter their identity, but the representation can bring you to your places of becoming quicker than ink to pen. This beauty was the very first goddess I selected for this project and she means the world to me. She was inspired by my Grandma Veda. She is the Sumerian Goddess of writing, accounts, and grain. Scribes and accountants most often ended their text with the words “Nisaba be Praised.” These magical words are inscribed on the back of the Goddess Coin in Sumerian as, “𒀭𒉀𒍠𒊩” and they are magick indeed. 

Her crystals are Quartz, Sodalite, and Peridot. These crystals are perfect for writing, accounting, filing, organizing, and formatting. These crystals are Level One, Two, and Four. Making a perfect cross combination for writing, creative thinking, remembering, and keeping track. 

“Write it down.” 

I want to thank everyone that contributed to this project.

Rhiannon Goddess Coin Necklace

Some consider her an actual Queen and historical figure, others feel like she is an actual deity, and the majority feel like she is both. Her lore shares many attributes with the Horse Goddess Epona, but the love of Rhiannon reaches further into our hearts than Goddess status. Rhiannon was strong willed and made her own decisions, even when the world told her no, she said yes. She was untouchable and did whatever it was that her heart desired. She wielded her enchantments and magical powers with the flick of her wrist. When she was wrongly accused, she prevailed, because nothing in the world could hold her down. She displayed the speed and strength of a horse but also the unexpected majestic grace and enchanted movements reached upon in Horse Symbolism. Her coin is adorned with a White Moonstone and a snowy Quartz. Displayed with the magical three birds of Rhiannon that follow her shadow; she rides into our hearts forever as our true hero of the tale. One of the first female heroes, before the world we live in allowed them. She is Rhiannon. 

Rhiannon shows you what you are waiting to be and reminds you that you are your own hero. “I am here to remind you that you can have anything you want, by your own doing.” 

I thank everyone who lent their hand to this project.

Isis the Goddess Coin Necklace

“I am that which was and is and will ever be, and no mortal has yet lifted the veil which covers me.”

Today’s spotlight is on a goddess with many names and a face that has been seen many places. Most know her as Isis, goddess of Egypt. Her presence is seen in every culture and in each culture she is a goddess of magic. Isis is more than a mother Goddess of magick, she is a representation of the great mystery of the feminine. She represents the darkest and lightest parts of ourselves that we haven’t unleashed yet. We are the Phoenix that has not risen, but lays quietly in the ash awaiting her time. Isis represents our risen potential. She is all of the magick you possess and all of the glory that it brings. 

Her crystals are Rose Quartz, Lapis Lazuli, and Quartz. All three sustainably sourced from Egypt with hands of Integrity. By celebrating her, we are remembering that we have not even scratched the surfaces of the unknown. We has a people have much to learn, because we have so much to learn about the ourselves.

I thank everyone who lent their hand to this project.

Boudica Coin Necklace

Today’s spotlight is not on a Goddess, but an ancient and shining one all the same. Boudica was the most famous Celtic Tribal Queen of Britannia. She fought to save her people from the invasions of the Roman Empire. Her bravery and warrior spirit are legendary to this day. She fought for her truth until the bitter end and is an everyday reminder that your fighting spirit can never be defeated. No matter what the scorecard says, you prevail by perseverance. Your fight alone makes you unable to lose. 

By celebrating her warrior spirit, we are remembering empowerment in ourselves. I thank everyone that lend their hand to this project.
