I really love how the Egyptian accessory designers stay true to our culture, but honestly its becoming too much! The Arabic calligraphy and the evil eye are really overdone nowadays.  I am not saying to stop designing those typical necklaces, bracelets, and earnings, but why not change it up a bit.  So have a line once a year that is bohemian or inspired by vintage jewelry.  Take a cue from the Nicole Richie House of Harlow 1960 line.  Below are same pictures to give you an idea.  If you agree with me, comment on the post, maybe the accessory designers will listen to us!
