A few days ago I received these beautiful earrings and necklace from thecryptofcuriosities. Since then I’ve worn the moon necklace almost every day (ღ˘⌣˘ღ). It has become one of my all time favourites ♡(ŐωŐ人). If you’re interested in their beautiful items you can use the code MOTH10 to get 10% discount. 

Definitely one of my favorite pieces we make…

In ancient Egypt, the Ankh was the symbol of eternal life, and literally meant “Life” in their hieroglyphic alphabet. The Ankh appeared in many pieces of art containing Egypt’s gods and goddesses, and has continued to represent the magnificent culture of Ancient Egypt for millenium. This beautiful piece will make an great gift for an Ancient Egypt-loving friend or family member, or addition to your personal jewelry collection.

Approximate pendent dimensions: 1.9″ x .9″ (49mm x 23mm)

How it’s made: Making the large ankh ring In photos

A surprising amount of making jewelry and running a craft/artisan business is putting in work no one knows about. So I decided to to show some of the process behind making your gorgeous jewelry just so beautiful. This is the “finishing” part -the laborious  time-consuming part that you don’t know I do, but would certainly notice if I skipped.

Love it? There is just one turquoise one left. Buy it here
