Friday Finds: Ancient Egypt

In celebration of the Spring Equinox, take a que from fashion icons Liz Tyler and Theda Bara and indulge your inner Isis with our round up of Egyptian-inspired jewelry. 3D printing has caused something of a new Egyptian Revival at the Factory of the Future, from entangled serpents to evocative amulets. Here are a few of our favorites.

The eye of Horus, the Ancient Sky God, is a common charm to ward against negativity while providing clarity of vision. Eye of Horus Egyptian 3D print Shapeways

Ever since Scarab charms where found in the tombs of Ancient Egypt, they have captured the popular imagination as a symbol of transformation. Anybody see Guillermo del Toro’s Chronos? Anybody?

I’m wearing this ring as I write this, and I love it. The stainless steel serpent coils snugly around the finger. Reminiscent of self-terminating snake Ouroborus, this design will garner you compliment after compliment. 
This week’s Friday Finds are brought to you by our fantastic Production Engineer, Pamela Liou.
