A Thing Of Beauty


One of the things associated with Egypt is the discovery of pharoanic gold. Some of it, like the mask or the coffin of King Tut are stunning both in the workmanship and in the sheer quantity. Others like this necklace are simply beautiful.

Wow. It is very nice. It would be worth a fortune.

I loved this piece when L saw it in the museum in Cario, I drew well scribbled it in my notebook with the intention of recreating it in other materials - umh perhaps the muse will strike me.
I enjoy seeing your photographs and eading your comments - it brings Egypt closer on a cold February morning in England
