Nefertiti's Treasure is my entry for the Etsy Beadweavers August challenge, themed "The First Lady of Style". I chose Nefertiti because she was known for her beauty, and there are many mysteries about her life and death. One theory is that she had shared the throne with her husband, the Pharoah, Akhenaten. Another theory was that she became the ruler, and had changed her name to correspond with her higher station. There was thought to her possibly being considered a goddess. One thing is for sure, for a woman in that time period or any time period for that matter, she held great power, and that's ok in my book!!
The "First Ladies of Style" voting begins on August 9th through the 15th at the Etsy Beadweavers Blog. Were counting on your votes.
