These spectacular beads are from the pharaonic periods of Egypt. Faience is a tin glazed ceramic and these colors, the blues and greens, were preferred by the Egyptians and Persians. The central bead is agate in the form of the Eye of Horus, or udjat. This incredible stone probably caught the “eye” of the artist who saw its magical form already in its natural state. The udjat is a symbol of wellbeing, protection and health. We have painstakingly woven the cord in between each beautiful little gem.
One of a kind- of course!
Agate Eye of Horus: just under 5/8 x 1/2″
Necklace length: 16.75″
A note about our woven cords. We weave these by hand, every one of them. Like all Jewels’ work no two are exact, as each of us. The work is labor intensive. When warmed to the skin the cord becomes more supple, conforms to the wearer, hangs at it should; the necklace transforms more than just a necklace. It becomes her or him.
