Ancient Egyptians made beads with faience, a mix of quartz and minerals. Today, Egyptians still make ceramic beads to mimic the look and feel of the jewelry worn by the ancients.
They are referred to as mummy beads. In the mummification process, jewelry was a part of your funerary goods. Necklaces were found in royal tombs throughout ancient Egypt. Our team of Egyptian craftsmen handmake ceramic beads for our mummy bead necklaces.
