The Ankh is an ancient Egyptian symbol.
"The Ankh is known as the key of life, the key of the Nile or crux ansata (Latin meaning "cross with a handle"), was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that read "eternal life". Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest. The symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life."
This Ankh has a Swarovski rivoli at the center, bezelled with peyote stitch, the rest is completely stitched in CRAW (Cubic Right Angle Weave).
The step-by-step instructions for the Ankh have clear images and photo's, and there's an extra page explaining the basic technique of CRAW
It's a beautiful symbolic piece, that can be used for many purposes, like a pendant, a brooch or a keychain.
Hi, I'm Sandra and I'm a Dutch beading addict. I've been beading as long as I can remember, mostly with seedbeads. I love beadweaving and I design and create all kinds of jewelry, mostly with a classic look.
I hope you will like my patterns and tutorials, and that I will hear from you again!
