Does this custom necklace bring to mind the image of a flapper? How about an Egyptian princess? After the discovery of King Tutankhamen’s tomb in 1922, Egyptian motifs were all the rage. Art Deco jewelry, too, explored Ancient Egyptian designs through a modern lens. In this custom five-strand necklace by Handmade by Sara Cramer, Sara also puts a “modern twist” on this Egyptian-inspired piece. Whereas traditional beads for a necklace like this would have been woven from fibers, Sara created her square beads from glass. CustomMade.com
