Eye of Horus Tree of Life Pendant
This Eye of Horus Tree of Life Pendant is pain-stakingly handcrafted with precision and detail. I use sterling silver plated copper wire but you have the option to upgrade to solid sterling silver. Just choose the option on the drop down menu. I used ornate lead and nickel free charms. There is a tiny pyramid with the Eye of Horus etched on it and an Ankh. Finally, the background of this Tree of Life is graced with a genuine Lapis Lazuli gemstone.
Breakdown of Symbolic Meanings
This pendant contains many different symbols which all combine to create a powerful protection piece. I will break down the meaning of each part.
First, in the ancient Egyptian measurement system, the Eye of Horus represented a fractional quantification system to measure parts of a whole. The entire eye measured one heqat and each of the parts measured fractions of the heqat.
Horus was an ancient sky god whose eyes were said to be the sun and moon. The Eye of Horus was believed to have healing and protective powers and was used as a protective amulet. It was also used for measuring ingredients in medicines and pigments.
Next, the Ankh is also known as the Key of Life, the Key of the Nile, or Crux Ansata (Latin for cross with a handle). It was the Hieroglyphic character that meant “eternal life.”
Lastly, Lapis Lazuli protects from psychic and physical attacks. It can be used in protection grids, worn, or carried to bring these protection energies. It can also protect a room or building when placed in the four corners.
In conclusion, this Eye of Horus Tree of Life Pendant is a round-house kick of symbolic protection and is sure to draw positive energies to the wearer.
