Jewellery was highly important throughout all of Ancient Egyptian history, worn across social classes, and by both women and men. Bright colours and patterns were exceedingly popular, as were bold, large pieces. Beaded necklaces were especially common. These necklaces were often made from beads of all different colours, sizes, and materials, arranged artfully to create an eye-catching piece.
Millefiori technique, meaning ‘thousands of flowers’ in Italian, is one of the most ancient glasswork techniques, which can be traced back to the 1400 BC.
