I need these gold Egyptian accessories in my presence today. I really never have worn accessories with an outfit of mine.. well not like these. If I do wear accessories it’ll be my earrings, my white G-Shock watch, and my wood beads that I got from Urban Outfitters. Thats it. But, recently with me doing this clothing line, I’m more in-tune with my sense of style and actually putting thoughts behind my specific outfits that i choose to wear. To be honest with you, I’ve never really put thought behind my outfits, i just put on clothing and go out. To me, if you have a good sense of style you dont have think about what you are going to wear, or what goes with what. Because, when you have to think hard on what you want to wear, mostly likely that style isn’t for you. Effortless style. I know i said i was going to put thought behind my outfits and you may say, ” I thought you said you dont think about what you wear or if you have to think to hard about choosing your fit that style isn’t for you?” True. But, im referring to a different thought process of putting fits together. I really cant just tell you that process yet because I havent really just sat back and thought about it on a deep level. When I find out what I exactly want to do, you’ll be the first to know. I was told a fool talks about things he doesnt understand or doesnt know about..
The reason why these gold accessories are appealing to me is because, I can see the vision that this jewelry designer is trying to project threw her pieces and plus I have always been in love with the Egyptian culture. A certain accessory can complement a outfit well. You can have a mediocre fit and add these things below to your fit and make your fit historic. Just imagine me or you walking down the street with king tut around your neck, and a two-finger lion ring on your fingers. Turning heads, right? Yes. I will explain the significance of king tut and the lion later in this post. The person behind these inspiring pieces comes from Japan and is a 21 year old accessory designer. Respect. She has more pieces but these are the ones that caught my eye.

The significance of King tut. Tutankhamunwas an Egyptian Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty, during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom. Tutankhamun was nine years old when he became pharaoh and reigned for approximately ten years. In historical terms, Tutankhamun’s significance stems from his rejection of the radical religious innovations introduced by his predecessor Akhenaten and that his tomb in the Valley of the Kings was discovered by Carter almost completely intact — the most complete Ancient Egyptian royal tomb ever found. As Tutankhamun began his reign at such an early age, his vizier and eventual successor Ay was probably making most of the important political decisions during Tutankhamun’s reign.
However, various fateful combinations of factors made King Tut, more fortunate in death than in life, the most famous Egyptian ruler ever. Still, his fabulous tomb, while revealing to us the extent of the wealth and beauty surrounding the kings of Egypt, tells us nothing much about Tut, himself. The cause of Tutankhamun’s death is unclear, and is still the root of much speculation. In early 2005 the results of a set of CT scans on the mummy were released. The body originally was looked at by Howard Carter’s team in the early 1920s, although they were primarily interested in recovering the jewelry and amulets from the body. To remove these objects from the body, which often were stuck fast by the hardened embalming resins used, Carter’s team cut up the mummy into various pieces: the arms and legs were detached, the torso cut in half and the head was severed. Hot knives were used to remove it from the golden mask to which it was cemented by resin.

The lion. It is interesting that, during most of the Pharaonic period, lions were relatively few in Egypt, but were at the same time significant to the Pharaonic Egyptians. Today, we know of no wild lions in Egypt. Their number declined steadily as the more lush climate of the prehistoric period faded into the desert climate that most of Egypt knows today, and as the inhabitable land of Egypt became more and more densely populated. However, it was probably during the prehistoric times that they became a symbol with religious associations. It is likely that the connection between the king and the lion grew from the tribal chiefs hunting these animals. Lions usually lived on the edges of the desert, and so they became known as the guardians of the eastern and western horizons, where the sun rose and set.
The most consistent depiction is in keeping with their image of “king of the jungle” or “king of the beasts”, hence lions are popular symbols of royalty and stateliness and a symbol of bravery. The earliest recorded depictions of lions can be found in some of the earliest paleolithic human cave art possibly dating to 32,000 years ago in the Chauvet Cave in the Ardèche region of southern France, where lionesses are depicted hunting for the pride in much the same strategy as contemporary lions. Found first in Ancient Egypt the sphinx, which had the head and shoulders of a human and the body of a lioness, represented the goddess who was the protector of the pharaohs. Later pharaohs were depicted as sphinxes, being thought as the offspring of the deity. Which is somewhat like the picture above to the left.
Didn’t mean to make this a history lesson.
