Custom Parent's Amulet Egyptian Papyrus Necklace
Jewelry - Acrylic On Papyrus With Sterling Silver
These necklaces are hand-painted on sustainable, authentic Egyptian papyrus and mounted in a cast sterling silver frame.
Painted in modern, lightfast versions of period colors and micropigments, the images themselves are only a half-inch high and protected by a clear doming epoxy resin. The full pendant is about an inch high and makes a unique, memorable gift for history buffs, pagans, Stargate fans and the person who has everything.
The figure positions in Ancient Egyptian artwork are limited by a sort of sign language that would have been readable even to illiterate citizens. In modern terms, drawing a cartoon with a thumb raised would convey an entirely different meaning than if it were the middle finger.
Children are facing away from the parents for teaching, toward them when they are about to be hugged. Girls have an Egyptian-styled ponytail. The "I Love You" pendants are written in hieroglyphs and come with a pronunciation guide. Allow a week for painting, assembly and curing before shipment for custom necklaces, although if I have one in stock it will ship immediately.
Each necklace comes with a 2mm black PVC cord with sterling findings, a velour or faux suede gift bag and instructions for care. An assortment of sterling chains are also available by request for an additional charge. They can be worn by either parent or child.
These pendants are inked and painted by hand on speckled sustainable Egyptian papyrus. Because they are hand-made each item in a design is completely unique. You will receive the design described with the same quality and attention to detail, but not necessarily the item pictured. Every attempt has been made to make sure the colors on your screen match the original, but due to variations on computer displays it may appear differently to you.
