It all harkens back to sixth grade, when we spent half the year studying the whole of Ancient Egypt, from mummies to pyramids to the gods and the Nile. We even went to the Egyptian Rosacrucian museum in San Jose (I grew up in the Bay Area) and to this day it still remains one of my favorite museums. The beauty and the mystery of that long-gone civilization has always stuck with me and it's my dream to one day go visits the pyramids and Nile. But until then, here are a few Etsy finds, that will keep both you and me in the spirit of all things Egyptian.
KZieglerDesign has shown up here before and will show up here again, but right now her beautiful map of Egypt really fits the bills. Hang it on your wall and fantasize about how far your reign would spread if you were a pharaoh in Egypt (and yes, women can be pharaohs too).
This ring from Arosha is an absolutely stunning interpretation of the jackal-headed god Anubis. A beautiful melding of the present with the past, this clean, elegant ring would look good on a man or woman.
Okay, okay. This shrug from Spicy Toast is also going to show up again tomorrow on Treasury Thursday, but I loved it so much I had to put it here, too. It is so different and yet so wonderfully simple. I would wear this in a heartbeat on a cool autumn night over a black tank and a pair of great jeans, with some super-high copper colored heels.
This earrings from TheSolarium are perfectly styled like an Egyptian cartouche, which is a royal name encapsulated in an ellipse, and I have no idea what these earrings actually say in hieroglyphics, if anything, but they are sure to make you feel a but more regal in their wearing.
