This Egyptian inspired bracelet features panels of royal blue, turquoise and red seed beads between beaded stripes of sandy dark beige.

I fashioned this bracelet after the charmed anklets of Queen Weret - part of one of the greatest archaeological finds of Middle Kingdom Egyptian jewelry. Each of the light brown stripes is beaded with square stitch to mimic the triple gold beads in the original piece. Between these are strands of beads in a repeating pattern of traditional colors. The center, red panel also features a charm - a trio of glass drops that add a little interest to the cuff.

The ends of the beadwork are finished with a simple fringe that follows the color pattern of the main beadwork. I have finished the bracelet with a beaded button and loop clasp in matching colors. The button is made with stripes of blue, turquoise and beige around a bright red glass bead.


Dimensions: The bracelet is 2.4 cm (1 inch) wide, and 19 cm (7.5 inches) long, including the clasp. The charmed panel is 3 cm (1.2 inches) wide at the center, longest drop. When the clasp is secured, the bracelet has an inside circumference of about 17.5 cm (6.9 inches). The beaded button measures 1.7 cm (0.7 inches) across.


Queen Weret II was the principal wife of Senwosret III. Her burial chambers were discovered in 1994, and held some amazing finds, despite being robbed some time after her death. Cleverly hidden receptacles were found to contain the remnants of beaded jewelry sets with the same palette of lapis, carnelian, turquoise and gold. The anklets, bracelets and other pieces were reconstructed by the Metropolitan Museum.

Materials used in this design include Japanese glass seed beads, and Czech pressed glass beads. I weave all of my jewelry using durable fused nylon thread for lasting strength and consistent shapes.

This one of a kind bracelet comes wrapped in tissue, packed securely with clean, repurposed bubble wrap or foam sheet, and shipped in a durable Canada Post cushion mailer.
