Ms Bently to design de Young collection
Jun '09
Amber Marie Bently presented her collection of twenty-three one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by the mystery and romance of the renowned exhibition, “Tutankhamen and The Golden Age of the Pharaohs” that opened at the de Young Museum in San Francisco.

The de Young's Director of Marketing and Communications, Susannah Stringam, invited Ms. Bently to design the collection. “As one of San Francisco's most unique artisans, Amber was the perfect choice. Not only does her sense of history and extensive travels infuse her work, but like the treasures from the golden age of Egyptian artistry, her work has timeless and enduring qualities.”

Inspired by ancient Egyptian jewelry techniques, Ms. Bently's collection features King Tutankhamen's iconic scarab motif and a silver wire wrapping jewelry technique from the later era of Cleopatra. The necklaces are hand crafted from brown Soo Chow jade, Russian green jade and blue lapis. Each piece is designed to be worn long, below the breast, and features exquisite silver wire wrapping details.
