The scarab beetle was sacred to the ancient Egyptians, and this pendant is designed in that spirit.

The beetle is encircled by a pair of curving outstretched wings, similar to ones seen in much of Egyptian art, with the tiers of feathers radiating outward from beetle, giving it the appearance of light and energy.

The two points of the wings come together at an orb-like object held in the beetle's front legs. This is part of the Egyptian legend of the scarab: Scarab beetles were seen by the Egyptians as symbols of rebirth and regeneration and they attributed the daily rising of the sun to Khepri, the scarab-headed god who was the alter ego of the sun god Ra. Every day Ra would traverse the sky and at sunset come to rest on earth's western horizon. And every night Khepri would roll the sun through the dark Other World back to its original position on the eastern horizon, ready for the next day's sunrise.

The pendant is very three-dimensional with the beetle's dome-like back rising up from the wings, and even its edge is has an appropriately exaggerated stud-like design which also accentuates the radiating effect.

An oxidizing technique makes the detailing and dimensionality.

The opposite side is partially hollowed out and has a fine hammered textured finish.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants. I've also included a photo of a cute necklace we made for a customer with many of our themed charms.
