BN-202 Red Glass Cartouche Necklace
After the discovery of King Tut's Tomb in 1922 Europe went mad for Egyptian anything! Decor, clothing, jewelry, costumes, etc.
The glass cabochons here are from the 1920's (Czech) and feature molded hieroglyphics. I've set them in a cartouche style pendant of hammered pewter with sterling wire accents. Traditionally cartouches proclaimed the name of the pharaohs, but I have no idea what these actually say, if anything. The beading is burl-nut from the Philippines so it's dramatic but light weight, which is nice to wear. It's finished with 2 inches of sterling chain and lobster clasp for an adjustable fit 19-21 inches.
Pendant measures 1.5 inches tall x 3/4 inch wide.
Available in black and gold as well!
