The ladder weave was popular among the Egyptians and there are many examples in museums around the world.

Unique! One of a Kind! This is a vintage piece with some discoloration on the metal beads. We think this adds to the ancient look; however, you can try to polish the tiny beads, if you wish. We are selling it "as is" to help clear out our old display stock of items that have been discontinued many years ago.
We ship via USPS Priority Mail - Insured for safety and so that you will receive your order in 2-3 days once the package is posted, plus you can track it on-line.

EVIL EYE: Dating back to the 3rd millennium B.C., many ancient cultures developed strong respect for the penetrative and mysterious powers of the eye. There was widespread belief that eye contact with certain beings or deities could result in illness, misfortune, and even death. In response, ancient artisans carved protective eye beads, such as this one, meant to look back at the evil eye, and to counteract its deadly deeds. In ancient Sumer, stones such as onyx, chalcedony, and banded agate were cut and polished into eye beads, which were then worn as amulets by kings and servants alike.
ANCIENT ECHOES: This line of jewelry is designed at our facilities and inspired by extant pieces from lost civilizations found in private collections or museums around the world. These ancient symbols, also evident in carvings and paintings in tombs, temples and other archeological sites, enable us to create unique pieces that resonate with the energy and beauty of centuries past. Each piece is individually handcrafted to honor our ancestors and the sacred cultures they left behind.
EGYPTIANS: This collection begins with the ancient Egyptian Dynasties starting with the First Dynasty's Abydos Bracelets and ending with the reign of Cleopatra after Alexander the Great had conquered Egypt. We have added Victorian to the time period because there was an Egyptian Revival during the 19th century when tombs were discovered in Egypt.
