Ancient Egypt is revered as a mystical and magical place according to lore and legend, and one who's relics and structures survive to this day and fashions still inspire. This lovely handmade and colourful beaded necklace is based on the culture's heraldic and omnipresent eagle design. It could equally come straight from the wardrobe of Cleopatra (although I think the wardrobe was yet to be invented and she appeared to prefer rugs) as much as a from a modern day collection. Made in India this supplier has ten people working for them in house, and as many as ten thousand home working artisans. Materials used to make their beautiful products can include glass, wood, horn, bone, shell, mother of pearl, clay, ceramic resin, sequins, metal, natural seeds like soap nut, tamarind and rudraksh. All items are handmade using traditional techniques. Employees are given an annual bonus which is one month?s salary and they are one of the trustees of charitable hospital near their office. They are proud of the fact that they are helping so many poor women, who are running their houses on their own. They are a happy and united company, and they help people in times of need. A stunning piece of jewellery that illustrates the old adage perfectly. ?If it ain?t broke, don?t fix it?.
