modern cleopatra

I sometimes forget what a great resource the Metropolitan Museum of Art is for jewelry. The shop has an amazing collection of affordable jewelry ranging from historically adapted pieces originating from every region of the world imaginable, to contemporary items with a simpler aesthetic. My "obsession de jour" is this Egyptian style snake bracelet. It would look gorgeous on a wrist or upper arm (I have noticed Sienna Miller, Mischa Barton and Maria Sharapova's arms decorated with wraparound serpents). I recently saw a woman wearing a bracelet like this on her wrist, over a long sleeve black top, and it looked great.

International fashionistas like me who don't live in NY can access this treasure trove via the Met's online shop. Paint a little kohl around your eyes for a truly Egyptian queen look...
