ankh-jewelry

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)

Eternal Feminine - Solange Azagury-Partridge

“A collection of five precious objects designed as jewellery boxes. The box becomes the jewels. Each box tells its own story.

This three-sided pyramid is a symbol of femininity representing the womb of the woman as a protective home for the child. All the elements in this box are created to protect the Little Cherub. The floor is set with triangular diamonds, the toughest and most precious material on Earth.”

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.
