The Winged Scarab Beetle with citrine is a remarkable silver specimen from the ancient Egyptian Era! An era were gods rule the forces of nature and contribute to changes in life and death. Khepri, a scarab faced god, was responsible for the cycle of day and night. He would move the sun across the night sky just like a Scarab Beetle would roll a ball of dung with its fresh layed eggs. New life would spring from this ball and the Sun would be born again each day. Therefor the god Khepri and the Scarab Beetle represent creation and rebirth.
The total length of the Winged Scarab Beetle necklace is 45 cm/ 18 inch.
Bones and Blooms
With the Bones and Blooms collection we enter the peculiar world of the Cabinet of Curiosities -or Wunderkammern! It is a room which stores and exhibits a wide variety of objects and artifacts, with a particular leaning towards the rare, eclectic and esoteric. Each oddity would individually and collectively tell a story about the person who put them together. They were mostly displayed to start a conversation and as way to entertain guests. The collector would tell its, often made up, history from lands afar.
With these new designs I have assembled my own collection of curious jewels inspired by this concept. Each meant to tell its own marvelous tale in silver.
