This is a bead necklace.
It is from the Sinai Peninsular. The ball beads were probably hand-made and the disc beads mould-made. The beads were re-strung by an excavator or more recently at the museum. It is not known if this was the original order that the beads were in.The ancient Egyptians mined turquoise and copper in the Sinai Peninsular. Faience was probably meant to imitate turquoise, giving many people the chance to wear what looked like expensive jewellery. This is a bead necklace. It is made from faience. We do not know how old this object is.
