Women's jewelry features two;
really new approaches to acces-
sories. Rather than stressing eith-
er gold or silver as has been done
in the past, two new materials;

Wooden jewelry, in the form of
necklaces, pins, earrings, or hair
adornments, has become the dis-
tinguishing mark of the individ-

The scarab, an ancient Egyp-
tian talisman, ornament and sym-
bol of ressurrection is rapidly
gaining popularity among campus
Originally, w e a t h y ancient
Egyptians used the scarabs as a
seal. When the name of the own-
er of the seal was eventually in-
scribed on it, scarabs attained a1
religious or amulet status.
The religious significance grew'
until the scarab became the sym-
bol of the god, Kheperi, an asex-
ual sun god.
The scarab was used as the'
symbol because of the supersti-
tious attachment it had and be-
cause ancient Egyptians believed
that the scarab insect was asexual
One point of comparison used3
was the way the scarab could be
found rolling its food along the7
ground with the Egyptian con-
ception that the run rolled acrossi
The scarab was not only used
by the god Kheperi. As the popu-
larity of the stone scarabs grew,
they became a combination sou-
venir and advertisement. Temples
of various gods gave them away
to pilgrims when they visited.
Whether for dress or for casual
wear, this jewelry adds an enviable
flair of character to her appear-'
For Every Occasion
The less embellished wooden
jewelry is perfect for autumn foot-
ball games. Worn with turtle neck
sweaters, shirts, or suits, its
uniqueness of shape, its exotic
quality transforms a plain outfit
into a creation that hints at the
mysticism of native jungles.
Dressier occasions find pearls or
gold designed on dark ebony set-
tings; perfect for simple black
sheathes or velvet shifts.
For the imposing, goddess-like
woman, the more massive forms of
these wooden pieces provide the
crowning touch. The more petite
