About

Jewelry from the Queens of the Kingdom of Kush

Candace Jewels is a jewelry design venue named for the Kandakes of the Kingdom of Kush. Kandake or Kentake was the title for queens regnant of the ancient Kingdom of Kush in the Nile Valley (also known as Nubia.) A queen regnant is a female monarch who reigns in her own right, in contrast to a queen consort, who is the wife of a reigning king, or a queen regent, who is the guardian of a child monarch reigning temporarily in their stead. Kandake is a derivative of Candace, a Meroitic language term for "queen" or "queen-mother". These were strong women who were buried in their own pyramids with their own treasures of jewelry and gold.
These warrior women are said to have conquered and ruled from Nubia to Egypt, Ethiopia, Syria, and the Mediterranean. From that strength combined with the beauty and femininity evident in the jewels found in their burial tombs came the inspiration for "Candace Jewels".
I hail from that heritage and my pieces reflect that history yet they are modern, one of a kind pieces, made of combinations of precious and semiprecious gemstones, fine crystals, and a variety of metals.
I highly covet suggestions, ideas, and made-to-order requests, and I look forward to hearing from each and every one of you. I hope that you will enjoy wearing this jewelry as much as I enjoy making it and that you will wear it in good health and happy times.
