A beautiful restrung bracelet of Ancient Egyptian faience beads. The design depicts a winged scarab, a motif typically seen on mummy masks from the period. Red disc beads outline the body, along with the elytra, prothorax and head. The eyes are detailed with two yellow beads each and the body and wings are comprised of a delicate green. At the tip of the wings are further red beads, which lead into the green bead wrist band. The piece is finished with a modern silver clasp (please be aware the clasp has not been professionally tied).
