Bastet or Bast was a goddess usually associated with cats. She is usually shown as a woman with a lioness-head or cat-head.

Originally a goddess of warfare until about 1000 BCE with the unification of the upper and lower Egypt. When she was changed from a lioness into a cat goddess so as not to be confused with Sekhmet, a similar lioness war deity that became more dominate.

Bastet went from a warrior goddess to a protector, the goddess of fire, cats, the home and of pregnant women.

Pewter Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper and other metals. It has a low melting point and is very easy to cast in molds. It has been used since ancient times for everything from jewelry to table wear and was once called the "poor mans silver". Generally pewter has a grayish/silver semi-dull finish, though this varies depending on the metals combined with the tin and can be colored black or other shades or plated with gold or silver. Pewter is generally hypo-allergenic and will not tarnish or react in most conditions. Note it can break or crack if flexed multiple times and rings cannot be re-sized, though interior ring springs or other adjusters might be used.
