Women’s Necklace in Nile Green Faience and Matte Black Lava - Em Hotep Collection

Motifs of green and black were prevalent in jewelry design among ancient Egyptian artisans. The variegated tones of Nile Green faience and matte black lava was a combination wore by many priests and members of the nobles classes. The toggle clasp and decorative spacers are all sterling silver. Please note that the necklace shown displays the amulet of the Lioness Goddess Sekhmet, a warrior Goddess of battle and healing. You may instead opt to have an amulet of an Egyptian Ankh with an embossed Was Scepter and Djed Pillar. Please see the included photo for your choice. Both amulets are finished in oxidized silver.

I entirely handcraft all of my jewelry and kiln-fire all my Egyptian faience beads. The techniques and artistry I practice is exactly that which was practiced by the magnificent artisans serving the Pharaohs and Queens of ancient Egypt. The sintered-quartz ceramic I make is made from the exact same minerals the Egyptians drew from the sands of their deserts and the silts of the Nile.

This women's necklace is from my “Em Hotep” collection. “Em Hotep” was a common Egyptian phrase one used to wish a friend or loved one peace and happiness.
