Jewelry designer Lele Sadoughi travels around the world and creates collections by connecting each piece’s design to the place

Her Spring 2013 collection is influenced by Ancient Egypt: scarabs, sundials and scepters.  The use of crystals (instead of diamonds) and enamel makes Sadoughi’s jewelry affordable, with most pieces in the $75-$300 range.  She writes a blog about how her travels inspire her work – the image below shows her “sundial inspiration.”  Pretty cool huh?

Egyptian style is distinct.  I bought a necklace in Israel (which conveniently doubles as a headband) and every time I wear the shimmering black and gold dainty piece on my head I hear “Tracey, you look so Egyptian.”  Essentially, you know Egyptian style when you see it.
