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.
This Scarab Bracelet looks like it’s part of a museum collection.
