Does anyone know of the “original” Egyptian coil necklace referred to
by a variety of sources. Most notably in Helen Clegg & Mary Larom’s
book, “Making Wire Jewelry”?
I’m curious if this was a style practice “4000” years ago or if this
was one example that made it into one book that everyone refers too
and forgets to quote the source. I’ve had a hard time finding
anything approaching historical info on the net and thought someone on
orchid might be able to point me to the source.
If you are curious about what an Egyptian Coil necklace looks like
just search on “Egyptian Coil” on yahoo.com.
Thanks in advance,
