Ancient Egyptian Goddesses in Beaded Elegance

Isis and Hathor, two of the most popular Ancient Egyptian Goddesses!

These two Goddesses were a joy to design and stitch! In addition to the many colors of embroidery floss, I used a lot of Mill Hill Seed Beads and two colors of Kreinik blending filament in each design to add a really nice texture to the finished product. Of course, you can stitch without the beads using the Bead to DMC color conversion chart.  But if you choose to stitch them in their full glory with the beads, I can assure you it will be quite worth the effort!

 

Hathor, Lady of Turquoise

Hathor, Lady of Turquoise

HATHOR
Lady of Turquoise, Mistress of the West, Goddess of Joy, Queen of the Dance, Lady of the Sycamore, and the Golden One!

I designed her dress with blue seed beads, inspired by the Ancient Egyptian beaded dresses!

The symbol next to her head reads “Hathor” in Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs.
