Jamie Spinello, a jewelry designer based in Austin, Texas, creates bold accessories inspired by the Ancient Egyptian culture. From stacked golden bangles to caged rings and oversized necklaces, there is a focus on geometric lines that will appeal to modern women everywhere. Nevertheless, Jamie Spinello has introduced a bit of history through the use of dark metals that have a weathered appearance.

Working predominantly with copper, brass and aluminum, Jamie Spinello operates a one woman studio that makes all of the jewelry by hand from scratch. Incredibly impressive, Jamie Spinello's creations can be worn by everyone from stylish working women to history-loving, cosplaying nerds.

Fit for the strong and independent woman, Jamie Spinello definitely channels Cleopatra, the last pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, when designing her jewelry pieces. They are made for warriors.
