This collection was inspired by my desire to connect to my Italian heritage. As I began searching the Internet and flipping through old books, I found that very often their were overlaps in the mythology of goddesses and the realm of witches. The goddesses and witches inspired me to bring together a collection that honors the beings that came before. This collection supports the duality of lightness and darkness that exists within us and outside of us. The collection came into manifestation when I stumbled upon vintage crescent moon bone dishes. They paired so eloquently with crystals and herbs/flowers upon my own alter that I decided to share the collection with all!

Nox (Nyx in Greek mythology) was the goddess of the night, one of the primordial gods, who emerged as the dawn of creation.
She was a child of Chaos (Air), and coupling with Erebos (Darkness) she produced Aither (Light) and Hemera (Day). Alone she spawned a brood of dark spirits including the three Fates, Sleep, Death, Strife and Pain.
Nox/Nyx was an ancient deity usually envisaged as the very substance of the night--a veil of dark mists drawn across the sky to obscure the light of Aither, the shining blue of the heavens. Her opposite number was Hemera (Day) who scattered the mists of night at dawn.
In ancient art, Nox was depicted as a either a winged goddess or charioteer, sometimes crowned with an aureole of dark mists. Nox gifts us the duality that reminds us that without dark, there is no light, without night, there is no day.

Venus was the Roman Goddess and love, beauty and seduction. The latter is suggested by the root word for her name "venes" which forms the root of the word venenum (poison) suggesting love potions and charms.

In Roman mythology, Flora was a goddess of flowers, and flowering plants, both the fruit bearing ones and the ornamental ones. She also came to represent the season of spring. While she was otherwise a relatively minor figure in Roman mythology, being one among several fertility goddesses, her association with the spring gave her particular importance at the coming of springtime.
Her festival, the Floralia, was held in April or early May and symbolized the renewal of the cycle of life, fertility, and blossoming. During the Floralia festival the Romans would wear brightly coloured clothes and wear wreaths of flowersx, while singingl, dancing and drinking. Chariot races were held in her honour.
