Egyptian Revival

Ancient Egyptian culture has long been a fascination of western society, to greater and lesser degrees, since ancient Greek and Roman times. In 1922, the discovery of King Tutankhamen’s tomb caused another outbreak of ‘Egyptomania’ that persisted for a decade, influencing all areas of artistic endeavor including painting, sculpture, fashion, filmmaking and literature.

The motifs and patterns associated with Egyptian art such as sphinxes, serpents, ba soul birds and winged orbs comprised the jewelers’ repertoire of design elements in the creation of colorful, flat panel bracelets.
