From the moment I saw King Tut exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the seventies, I knew I was destined to study ancient Egypt and to make jewelry. During college, I studied Egyptian Archaeology at the Ecole de Louvre in Paris. It brings me great joy to share my love of this culture through jewelry. In this collection, I focus on the symbols and the gemstones that were most commonly used for decorative and religious purposes in Ancient Egypt. Gold plated charms and accents are shown throughout this collection, as it was favored by the Egyptians for jewelry making, due to its abundance in the fertile riverbeds. Scarabs, the symbol of renewal, and ankhs, the symbol of life, are some of the most classic ancient symbols. We complement these symbols with the same semi-precious gemstones that the ancient Egyptians valued for their beauty and spiritual importance: turquoise, lapis lazuli, amethyst and carnelian. Although the references are Egyptian, this collection is all made in the USA.
