Egyptian Symbol for Love Necklace in Silver with “Egyptian Sky” & “Wadi Sand” Faience Beads

This Egyptian Symbol for Love Necklace is entirely handcrafted and made from kiln-fired Egyptian faience beads. The techniques and artistry I use are precisely those found in the magnificent ancient Egyptian faience artwork created some 5,000 years ago. The sintered-quartz ceramic I create is made from exactly the same type of minerals the Egyptians drew from the sands of their deserts and the silts of the Nile.

The juxtaposition of the colors of blue “Egyptian Sky” and warm “Wadi Sand” evoke a unique and engaging luster to this Egyptian Symbol for Love Necklace. The amulet is in the design of the Egyptian Goddess Hathor, known as the Goddess of Love. This is a solid Sterling Silver amulet. This Egyptian Symbol for Love Necklace is 15-3/4 inches long, falling between a choker and princess length. Please note the images shown are this one particular Egyptian Symbol for Love Necklace, and are for display purposes only. The Egyptian Symbol for Love Necklace you order will undoubtedly have slight variations of the variegated tones and shapes within the beads and amulet. The is the nature of Egyptian Faience and metal casting, and consequently part of it’s beauty and allure.

The most famous Goddess of Ancient Egypt is Hathor. Known as the Goddess of Beauty and Love; yet her’s is never a vain or shallow beauty and love. Rather she is assured of her own allure and grace and loved all that was alluring and graceful around her. Hathor is also known as the “Mistress of Life” and is the embodiment of love, joy, romance, music, dance and celebration. Hathor’s cult is directly connected with the fragrance myrrh; considered most precious by Ancient Egyptians and to embody all of the wonderful qualities of the female sex.

This Egyptian Symbol for Love Necklace is from the “Ka Collection”. The Ka is a person’s life force. When a body was prepared for the tomb, the ancient Egyptians would bestow great offerings inside the burial chamber to feed the Ka in the afterlife. The Egyptian word Ka means “double”, and is typically inscribed as a hieroglyph of uplifted arms, designating the protecting divine spirit of a person. I strive to evoke the duality of this spirit in the designs.
