Eddie Borgo travels back to ancient Egypt for his Fall 2013 collection, chock full of baubles that one might have found in Cleopatra’s jewelry chest.
From Eyes of Horus motifs to scarabs, the designs are akin to pieces you might see behind the glass at a natural history museum.
Chain links give a modern and industrial flair to statement necklaces.
In ancient Egypt, jade was revered as a stone representing balance, harmony, love, and peace, and it is used here on eye-catching wristwear, as well as being juxtaposed against other stones including onyx and howlite.
Halloween might be more than half-a-year away, but Borgo is urging you to indulge in a pavé and scarab accented mask, sure to strike up a few conversations.
Though I love a head-turning piece, my favorite accoutrements in the collection are of the simpler variety, for everyday wear.
Get your hands on these beauties now by pre-ordering them at www.modaoperandi.com.
