Know your fashion history....
What I love most about making vintage jewelry are the little histories that go along with each piece: a color, pattern or style that speaks of another era, given new life in a modern design.
Lots of fashion is informed by pop culture and, in the 60s, it was much the same. When I found these Egyptian Revival pendants, I was reminded that the style, which originated in the 1920s, was brought back by Elizabeth Taylor's epic 1963 performance in the film Cleopatra. Oh the sultry shades and luxurious fabrics!
Inspired by the rich colors and dramatic look of Cleopatra, my Siam Scroll Earrings will make you feel like a queen!
