Ancient Egyptian "Mummy-Bead" Jewelry
Dynasty XXVI, circa 664 -- 535 BC

These colorful beads were individually crafted in ancient times out of clay-like faience. This normally plain-colored material turned vibrant shades of yellow, green, turquiose, red, brown, auburn, orange, and blue when fired. When a person was laid to rest, these beads were woven into intricate net-like shrouds depicting the deceased in youth, gods, animals and other motifs. These shrouds were then laid across the sarcophagus before the tomb was finally closed. Over the centuries, the original twine which held the beads together decomposed and the tombs were eventually buried in the desert sand. These beads come from the Simonian family collection, Switzerland, acquired in the 1960's.

The beads have been re-strung on sturdy flexible wire with sterling silver clasps and findings, and are perfectly wearable. I can make custom bead necklaces using original amulets and udjats. Please contact me for details!
