The scarab beetle is often represented in ancient Egyptian amulets and artworks. The scarab beetle god Khepera was believed to push the setting sun along the sky in the same manner as the beetle pushes a ball of dung along the ground. In many artifacts, the scarab is depicted pushing the sun along its course in the sky.

I made this necklace by drawing five different designs onto brass, copper and sterling silver, cutting them out by hand with a tiny saw, and riveting them together with sterling silver rivets. I then hung the piece on a handbound black cord. I used a file to engrave the lines of the feathers on the wings.
The cord is 45cm long, and the scarab piece is 8.5cm in length.

Every piece I create is handmade by me in my workshop by the beach in Wellington, New Zealand. Hand cut metal, riveted and polished, each piece is lovingly handcrafted, making every piece a unique work of art.
