The Details...

This silver tone metal pendant features pharaoh and dragon motifs. It is detailed with small, round, multi-coloured glass cabochons and hand-painted details. It measures 3.5cm x 4cm. 

A Short History...

In 1922, Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun and, thereby, ignited a Western fascination with Ancient Egypt which permeated the Arts. Jewellery designers created heavily stylised profiles of people and hieroglyphs taken from tomb walls and incorporated them into their work. Reviving Egyptian motifs was a real 1920s celebration of adventure and breaking down cultural barriers. 

Wear it With...

Attach this pendant to a delicate silver chain and wear with a jewel-coloured silk shirt.
