Ancient Egytian Faience Beads

Egypt,  Middle Kingdom
These spectacular handmade (of course!) ceramic beads have the remains of the faience slip, hence, the gorgeous blue.  Imagine the person who formed, cut and incised each.  Jewels geniously designed the necklace in two strands, carefully placing each with specific instructions to the most talented Khadija on how and where to weave the cord.  The gorgeous aqua blue closure is ancient glass.

Largest Bead: .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.
