Metal jewelry designer Jamie Spinello’s recent creations are inspired by a time that has always intrigued me – ancient Egypt. This is a new fashion trend – you heard it here first. OK, maybe you didn’t but I’m putting it out there!

Working with copper, aluminum and brass, Jamie crafts pieces inspired by all kinds of different cultures, peoples and times in history but what interests me most is the Egyptian jewelry, partially because I love the geometries but also because I like the oversized nature of the pieces and their forcefulness.


The warrior cuff and muzzle ring appear to be inspired by battle gear – so cool. They’re almost Brutalist…

You can buy Jamie’s jewelry on Etsy. Also, check out her plastic dioramas and papercuts – awesome!
