A pair of vibrant drop earrings inspired by the Egyptian queen, Nefertiti.
The earrings feature oval beads of rusty agate, round beads of turquoise howlite and lapis lazuli, with brass discs.
The design has been inspired by the first three rows of the collar necklace of the bust of Nefertiti which can be found at the Egyptian Museum of Berlin. The extraordinary bust, thought to have been crafted by Thutmose in the 14th century BC, was discovered in 1912 with impressively preserved pigments colouring the face, crown and necklace.
A sweet gift inspired by ancient history.
