Earrings with two Egyptian blue glass beads.

Extensive glass production in Egypt started as early as the Eighteenth Dynasty. A recent discovery linked cobalt blue glass beads, unearthed in Denmark, to the ancient Egyptian workshop for Pharaoh Tutankhamun.

The chemical composition of the Danish beads matched the blue glass on King Tut's death mask. This indicates that 3,400 years ago an extensive trade network ran from Egypt to the Nordic region and reached ancient Denmark.

Diameter beads: ±  11,6 mm

Ancient & Roman beads
Every authentic ancient bead is slightly different in shape or colour shade and shows different signs of wear or the passing of time (iridescence). This adds to the charm of each piece and makes every composition unique.
We cooperate with various local Dutch designers who handcraft all our special designs. This makes it possible to customize some of our existing designs (longer/shorter) or offers the possibility of creating a new design according to your personal preferences. Contact us to discuss the options.

All our beaded jewellery is restrung with contemporary professional stringing material and fasteners to make it wearable or to facilitate putting it on display. All spacer beads, hooks, fasteners, etc. are gold/silver plated nickel-free metal or stainless steel.
