Girlfriend Goddesses® Hand sculpted jewelry

About the Goddesses:
The Girlfriend Goddesses® are the symbolic figurations of womanhood inspired by my favorite Goddess, the Venus of Willendorf- the Upper Paleolithic Venus found in Austria in the 19th century. She is 4 3/8” high is made from limestone and painted with red ochre. She is fat and bulbous but though not to be pregnant- but a Mother image.

I have always been fascinated by these early fertility symbols and their real meanings. Were they magic totems? Were they religious offerings? Were they worn to keep the wearer safe? These figures were made from the earth out of clay and carved rock. Maybe early woman thought the earth itself was a living thing that all life generated from. We will never know their real meanings.

My Goddesses are not sexual or erotic in the modern sense, but are representative of the mythic feminine human forms left by early humans. In the caves where these early figures were found, some had holes made into the top- it is thought that some were worn around the neck as individual pendants , amulets , talismans or as personal adornment.
The image of the Goddesses transcends all races and ethnic groups. They celebrate all of Womanhood, the Primal Mother who gave birth to the first human beings.
Women are the rocks and foundations of life. They are creators of new life, children, nurturers, caregivers, parents, lovers, artists, healers, warriors, hunters and gatherers.

Girlfriend Goddesses® are great for all stages of life. Girlfriends are always there for you...

“Wear this charm and you will never be alone,
you will always have a girlfriend with you!”

My Girlfriend Goddesses® comes with its own History Card and special packaging.
