Egypt-actus's insight:

Extraordinary brightly-coloured glass jewellery believed to be from Ancient Egypt has been found in a 2,400-year-old burial mound in Siberia. 

Nicknamed 'Cleopatra's Necklace' by the Russians who found it, the jewellery was discovered on the skeleton of a 25-year-old woman, believed to have been a virgin priestess.

Although it was discovered during a dig nine years ago, this is the first time a picture of the priceless 17-bead necklace has been shown since it was found in the Altai Mountains by archaeologist Yelena Borodovskya.

Saqqara : une collection de bijoux inspirée des pyramides de l’Égypte Ancienne

Saqqara : une collection de bijoux inspirée des pyramides de l’Égypte Ancienne | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Adeline Darmagnac,diplômée d’un Master en Arts Graphiques de l’ESAG Peninghen Paris, a imaginé pour Jewellery Ethically Minded (JEM) une collection de bijoux architecturale inspirée des lignes brisées des pyramides de Saqqara, premiers ouvrages en pierres de l’Égypte Ancienne.

Egypt-actus's insight:

À l’image des constructions pharaoniques, véritables défis au temps, Saqqara est une quête d’absolu et d’éternité. Des lignes épurées et évidentes sublimées d’un Or éternel, qui se répondent naturellement dans un jeu de complémentarité et de rapports géométriques.
