Even the Dead want to look good!

Egyptian Mummy inspiration for Suga Bum Bum

I love the intricacy of Egyptian art. No much time seems to go into looking beautiful, especially for women. In that era, woman seemed to have been meticulous about their appearance,. Woman's lib has us running to the store in dirty sweat pants and house shoes..We are so far from the days when adornment was a very necessary requirement for beauty.

Manufacturers and ad campaigns seem to love frumpy, muted people were always about color, about flare. Thats why  love handmade things, the energy, the no rules apply that an artist can translate into a piece that can change the way you feel about yourself for that day, maybe even forever. I never met someone who didn't want to look good, have you?
