Bronze Eye of Horus Pendant
The Eye of Horus, also known as wadjet, wedjat or udjat, is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power, and good health. The Eye of Horus is similar to the Eye of Ra, which belongs to a different god, Ra, but represents many of the same concepts.
The Bronze Age in Great Britain and Western Europe began over 4,000 years ago in around 2,000 BC. Both Copper and tin were discovered, mind and fused together to form the alloy bronze, renowned for its strength and longevity.
A new Bronze Age is appearing from the depths of history; a revival of a bygone culture and a metal that changed lives and brought a sophistication in jewellery that had not existed before.
Using recycled copper and Cornish tin we have re-created this ancient metal. After casting at over 10000°C into an investment mould we then refine the raw pieces using linishing and fettling techniques. Finally, the refined items are hand-polished and assembled to produce a collection of unique jewellery.
