Nekhbet the Vulture Collar. Blue Red Stripe Beaded Egyptian Necklace


This stunning Egyptian collar features stripes of red, blue, black and beige, inspired by the wings of the vulture goddess Nekhbet.

I used a variation of herringbone weave to create the curved collar shape, using a variety of bead sizes and colors. The necklace includes bands of color in varying widths: Capri blue, jet black, royal blue, bone white, cherry red, transparent gold, light beige, and garnet red. The collar closes with a beaded button and loop clasp made with matching colors.

Dimensions: The collar is 2.7 cm (1.1 inches) wide, and has an inner circumference of 39 cm (15.4 inches). The beaded button measures 2 cm (0.8 inches) across.

The closely stitched herringbone collar provides a gorgeous band of solid beadwork in a perfectly curved circle, which mimics the classic Egyptian broad collar. The beadwork is very flexible, with a very slight ruffle along the edge.

The entire necklace is woven with Japanese and Czech glass seed beads, using a durable fused nylon thread. The beadwork is strong, and won't stretch or lose its shape over time.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Nekhbet was a goddess of motherhood and childbirth, who was responsible for protecting the gods and the royal family. She was usually depicted as a vulture or a winged snake, and can be seen on the crowns of many ancient Egyptian pharaohs, along with her counterpart Wadjet. For this piece, I wanted to capture the beautiful red, blue and gold plumage of Nekhbet's vulture form.
