Swivel Joint Bracelet

Swivel Joint Bracelet

This bracelet was placed in the king's mummy wrappings under his left arm. It is made of two semicircular gold tubes connected at one end by a swivel joint hidden by three stone beads, two of lapis lazuli and one apparently of calcite, all of which are flanked by gold disk beads. Mounted on the bracelet opposite the beads is a carnelian bird supporting the sun's disk.
