These 2" handmade resin Ankh necklaces were designed by Manoah Nova Third Eye Creations and come upon a black or colored cord. Each design varies and they can also be customized to your liking as well. Some are just the ankh cross while others are an ankh on a circular pendant. Great to wear as a necklace, hang by an altar, or in a car. They are strong and durable. Great for those who want to wear jewelry but can't wear metal or other types of materials. The ankh or key of life is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol that was most commonly used in writing and in Egyptian art to represent the word for "life" and, by extension, as a symbol of life itself. The ankh has a cross shape but with a teardrop-shaped loop in place of an upper bar. The ankh symbol—sometimes referred to as the key of life or the key of the Nile—is representative of eternal life in Ancient Egypt. Additionally, ankhs were traditionally placed in sarcophagi to ensure life after death.
