Upon death in ancient Egypt, it was believed that one's heart was measured in lightness against the feather of a goddess, and if found wanting it would be devoured by a monster never to find the afterlife. The guarantee of protection to mask the faults of the heart was a scarab amulet, the beetle's shiny carapace a beautiful jewel and the only shield against the sins of living.
I love this ancient belief and like to think that this beetle design is imbued with protective qualities.
This beautiful beetle pendant was hand cast from a real beetle. The detail is just stunning on both the top side and bottom side of the pendant.
Your pendant will be packaged in a hand folded tissue paper inside a hand stamped gift box along with brand postcard. Please see image with example packaged item.
