I thought it was about time I finally started finding new homes for the Deity statues I’ve amassed over the past few years. I can’t stand seeing Deities unloved and homeless so I have rather a hoard now! I have lots more to list and can only manage to photograph a few at a time, but you can expect to see plenty more in the coming months.
Part of the idea behind the Etsy shop was to become more financially independent by doing something I love, and I hope to better realise this as I move forward. Another reason is that it can be quite hard to find good quality Egyptian statues in the UK, so in some small way I hope to make them more available, thus honouring my Beloved Deities by sending Them forth into peoples’ homes.
For now, due to the breakable nature, weight and subsequently high postage cost of the statues, the majority will be available to UK buyers only. I cannot justify charging nearly £18 postage to the USA, or £13 to the EU, especially when import taxes are factored in too, so I apologise. Some of the smaller items I have yet to list may be made available to those outside the UK.
I will still be making prayer strands, which will be available to buyers outside the UK. I haven’t got any to list yet but now my wellbeing is starting to improve I hope to get back to my beads soon.
Anyway, here are the four preloved Deities currently available from my Etsy shop and looking for Their new homes:

These beautiful Nine-Flame Prayer Beads are available now from my Etsy store!
The Nine-Flame strand is based on a Brighid’s Flame set I made for a friend. They are perfect for connecting with Deities associated with fire and smithcraft, the blazing sun, or of the burning heat of the desert. Could also be used to connect with volcanic Deities, primal forces, or to act as a representative of the element of Fire.
Fire can burn away the old to make way for the new, so these prayer beads could be used in releasing ceremonies, as well as for renewal. After the dust has settled from the ashes of the old the new is born.
For writers and creators they could also be used to channel the flame of inspiration
Made of nine glass flame twist beads, 4mm glass beads and glass seed beads. Length: approximately 48cm. Weight: Approximately 45g
There is one strand currently available but I will be making a few more. How many depends on how long the flame twist beads last as I may be using some in other designs.
P&P Update: Etsy has a lovely little postage setting for the European Union. Since the cost of postage to the EU is the same throughout I have added this option. If you live in any of the EU countries you can now purchase from Northern Tamarisk without having to send a request for your country to be added to my postage list. It also makes it a lot quicker and easier for me, because otherwise I’d have to list each country separately.
As always, postage to the UK and USA remains.
Follow the journey of the sun God Ra through the sky. The lighter scarabs represent Khepera rolling the sun through the sky during the daytime, and the darker ones represent Ra’s journey through the Duat at night. There are 12 scarab beads in total, representing the 12 hours of the day, and of the night. At either end there is a lobster clasp so the strand can be joined to form a continuous circle, just as day and night form a continuous cycle.
It’s a lovely piece with a nice weight to it, perfect for keeping you grounded while saying prayers or devotions. It will also add an element of interest to any altar or shrine setup.
There are two strands available. The turquoise scarabs are slightly lighter on one set.

I have now made my items available for sale outside the UK. I currently have a selection of countries in the postage section but if you don’t see yours there please let me know and I will work out the postage and add it to the listing.
After several months of procrastinating due to health issues and fear I’ve finally decided to dip a toe into the Etsy waters. My re-named Etsy shop now has three items to start off Samhain, and I will be adding different pieces over the coming months. My focus for now will be devotional jewellery and prayer-bead strands, but I would also like to expand into altar/shrine kits with Deity statues (mostly Egyptian) who are looking for a new home.
I am currently only offering shipping to the UK, but when I’ve had a little more time to get my bearings I hope to offer my products for sales outside the UK as well.
