"Hathor": Lady of Turquoise, Mistress of the West, Goddess of Joy, Queen of the Dance, Lady of the Sycamore, and the Golden One!
In this design, her dress is beaded with the blue seed beads (inspired by the Ancient Egyptian beaded dresses!) The design has a really nice dimensionality with the beads and a touch of glitter that comes from the Kreinik blending filaments and the glass seed beads.
The symbol next to her head reads “Hathor” in Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs.
