Skull Baby Update One

We receive messages about Skull Babies daily. They have been off the website since last October, and the main reason was that I was so severely behind. The waitlist was way too long. I am currently just starting to finish up the orders from last October. (Yes, there were that many, and I was that behind) 

Once the website orders are complete, I have a few custom Skull Babies that are in preparation and one that is my besties baby (yes, I am even behind on my besties skull baby)  

I love making them and wondered if I should just make them and then place them on the website. Many of you commented on those posts when I asked for your opinions about how to proceed with them, and I appreciate the feedback.


The main issue is when they get behind, or even if I am in a good place with them… (most people are very patient, some never email in, and some check in once. or twice, no biggie), but there are usually some that are not patient at all. I have had customers email once a week and sometimes more asking when their Skullbaby will be ready. Sometimes bullying a completion date from us. It makes it very stressful. Especially if it isn’t ready by the estimated completion date. A lot of calculation goes into them, and I don’t want to shortcut any of the steps because that is not how I designed them to be created.

I know some people do not care, but I make them with planetary guidance and the movements of the moon. There are certain cycles I refuse to work on them under. I use numerology based on the customer’s name, and every drop of water used in the making of the piece is a moonwater collection. There are so many people that think this is pointless and that do not follow these things; that is ok but realize that some people do. This is how I make them. I refuse to just make them. They are layered and time collected.

So I decided to have a ready version available every other month or so. For customers that want one but do not like the wait. Then I plan on having them on the website again as before to order as a “made when ordered” item. Also, the new Skullbabies will be relaunched in just a few months (after I am completely finished with everyone who has been waiting) The new Skullybabies, or Skullbaby T-5000 as we have been calling them around here, will have a new design and will be available in a necklace and ring selection. I have not decided if I will let custom add-ons be a part of this new release or not. I will keep you posted.


Thank you so much for all of your kind emails and kind comments about this subject.

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.

Kali Goddess Coin Necklace

“You must destroy to create. In time, all endures both, for infinity.”

Kali is the ultimate reality and manifestation of Shakti. She is the Mother of all beings and the ultimate Mast of Time. As energy changes and cycles through lives, it is moved by her hand. She is the force of time. The creator and the destroyer.

She is the Mother that takes your hand and guides you through the sea of monsters. Change can be scary and as the force of change, she is also a protector in its whirlwind. A most powerful Goddess indeed.

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.

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.

The Hand of Hekate Necklace

I appreciate all of the kind encouragement through the manifestation of this piece. Posting the rough molds was a little scary because there was so much that was unseen going into this necklace. Sometimes the story is never seen, so your interpretation of the story you are retelling through art, is also cloaked in your mind. 

A very long time ago, I saw a photo of a Great-Great Grandmother in my family tree. There was not a lot of information about her but she was interesting. I was determined to learn more but no one could really tell me anything. Genealogy research also went nowhere. She was quite the mystery. When that happens in ancestry, you start researching their names, clothing, and jewelry in photos. Her name was Amandus (Amanda) Rossetti. Her mother’s name was Mahala. That and a photo of her as a very old woman were all we had. Secondly, I studied the dress she was wearing. It was not of any major significance. Her white hair was piled on top of her head and you can see a necklace around her neck. It was somewhat clear, but I had a friend of mine zoom it in and clean it up a bit. She was wearing a necklace known as a Mano Cornuto or the Sign of Horns. An Italian Amulet that looks like the “Rock and Rock” hand gesture but facing down. Mano means “hand” and Cornuto means “horn” and like the Italian horn, it protects against Malocchio, which means the Evil Eye. These symbols have been around before Italy and before Rome. They have been found prior in Greece and even Ancient Sumerian cultures used them. Not to mention the Karana Mudra, among many others.  

This propelled me to take several classes on hand gestures and their symbolic meanings from antiquity to now. I was taken aback by the meanings and beliefs behind them. This was when the internet didn’t offer classes, so I had to take in-person workshops, so it was over a several-year basis. From there I branched out into learning about hand gestures deities used and were known for. I was so geeked out on these hand gestures that I found myself one day, years into research, that all started from a very old photo of my Great-Great Grandma. This is an exact example of how my brain works, I just keep gobbling up info until I’ve paved a highway. I then look up and see that I am miles from where I started.

This pendant is a huge symbol of that essence of me, combined with something from my family’s distant past, and more than anything a huge dose of the old ways. This pendant is Hekate’s hand projecting protection from all who target you. Her snake is symbolic of you being able to shed anything that tries to attach itself to you, like old skin.

Hekate’s Cuff and Ring have a stone choice of obsidian or amethyst. A few people that viewed the work in progress told me I would be “on trend” if the nails were long and pointy. The thing is, I wanted an edited design that would last the test of time. One day, that may not be on-trend. When that happens things seem dated. I like the idea of timelessness. Just as this hand gesture is timeless. Just as Hekate herself is timeless. 

Thank you for reading this blog! This necklace is very limited and will not be around again. When these are gone, they are gone. All of my love and many many bright blessings!
