This has been a journey to finally get this point. Pictured here is the prototype of the Lilith pendant I have been working on for a LONG TIME. It is based off of the current LILITH pendants that are sold today, sources unknown.
There is also another version similar to this where Lilith is holding the rod and rings and has a banner wrapped around her body. The banner wraps around her chest and lover abdomen, perhaps to make it more rated-G. The banner also includes the words LILITH on it. Again, to make it distinguishable for what the complete figurine is supposed to be.
All through 2018, I was focused on getting as much new items as possible to build out the inventory for the website.
I did take notice that there was a growing movement with women and I felt that 2019 will be the biggest year yet.
Up until now, everything I have produced was more or less, made for both sexes. Upon the 2019 year, I wanted to really come into the year with a piece that will be best suited for women only. While Baphomet is a great representation of what our philosophy means to individuals, LILITH was definitely something that is more aligned with women. Although, I guess these days, it can work for anyone that appreciates Lilith.
"Lilith is the most notorious demon in Jewish tradition. In some sources, she is conceived of as the original woman, created even before Eve, and she is often presented as a thief of newborn infants. Lilith means “the night,” and she embodies the emotional and spiritual aspects of darkness: terror, sensuality, and unbridled freedom. More recently, she has come to represent the freedom of feminist women who no longer want to be “good girls.” - Source: https://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/lilith-lady-flying-in-darkness/
Based on what I gathered, Lilith has taken many forms when it comes to drawing it. I had rushed to produce the prototype and after some time, I waited to find another artist to produce a version based on the prototype. The reason for the delay on the piece was due to the fact that I loved the second artist's version so much that I wanted to create it instead. The wings would be more like bat wings, large in size. Lilith would also have horns as an added touch for aesthetics. And the rest would be the same as in the 'feathered' version seen above.
In the end, the factory would have more trouble than it was worth considering the time they required to perfect it. Plus, a facebook poll revealed that everyone would prefer the version seen above since I had dropped a teaser pic before. And now here we are...the piece is nearly completed.
I am currently working on restocking RINGS and will included HALF SIZES. New jewelry boxes will be larger to accommodate the rings during shipping. More chains are coming and other prototypes as well. All this and MORE is coming in April. The Lilith necklace is the most important part of this announcement.

I will be sending a newsletter when I feel comfortable to start taking orders for the Lilith necklace and of course, a separate announcement will be made via social media, Facebook and Instagram.
Please share, comment on this piece and let me know what your thoughts on this is. This is the piece as it will be sold. More details to come in the following 2 weeks. Production is expected to end by April 10th, 2019.
