       The story of Lilith and Adam dates between 2000 B.C. 1000 A.D. in religious history: the world turning from a Matriarchy into a Patriarchy. This evolution is exemplified via the major myth of Lilith, Adam and Eve. In order to assimilate the ancient Pagan belief systems into the new Judeo-Christian religions, the existing stories needed new twists. The early monotheists took important female symbols and showed their strengths as evil and unacceptable to their new male God. It is in this creation myth of the first woman and man that the struggle for religious power is portrayed during this tumultuous time.

       The original Lilith was “divine Lady” to the Pagan Canaanites of 2000 B.C.. For the Jews she became the First Woman who coupled with Adam, the First Man. In a highly symbolic act, Lilith refused to lie beneath during intercourse. The position favored by ancient matriarchs was to squat on top. The new patriarchy insisted that man be on top. Catholic authorities said that any sexual position other than the male-superior one was sinful. Likewise, Moslems said, “Accursed be the man who make woman heaven and himself earth.”

       When Adam tried to take her by force, she left the Garden of Eden and went to live by the Red Sea where she had great sex (with supposed Demons) and lots of children. Upon refusing to go back to Adam in Eden, God punished Lilith by killing one hundred of her children each day. Yet, it was Lilith who became known as the child killer, not God. God then made Eve out of Adam's own rib to ensure obedience. Years later, Lilith was removed from Holy Scriptures completely.

       Jezebel works inherently capture a feminine perspective. In this image we are looking over Lilith's shoulder. The two are standing facing each other in a loving embrace with neither one on top or bottom, thus reflecting an entirely new paradigm: Equality.

       Jezebel's art is symbolic with meanings that relate to many different cultures past and present. In "Lilith and Adam", each item, creature, plant or shape is intended to represent a history of interpretations.

The art is gorgeous, especially the lamps and chandeliers. There is also a gift shop where you can buy hematite rings and other cool stuff, and while you're there, grab a soda or some coffee.

This isn't just some machine made piece of glass packaged in a factory, it is actually made by an Artist, by hand, in the Studio of their Gallery. There were a lot of color options to choose from too, it was hard to decide but I'm definitely pleased with my choice. No regrets! That is something else I loved about this, I was supporting a small business and an Artist and not some big company that could care less about me. I am all about supporting the Arts, small businesses, and anything local so this was very cool, a good find. Altogether I am very happy with my new Pendants and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for something different, artistic, and unique! :)"
