The winged beetle supporting the sun is a famous motif in the art of ancient Egypt, representing the sun God Khepera (or Khepri) who is responsible for the rebirth of the sun at dawn.

A large (1 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches) antique brass winged beetle adorns two (non-similar) strands of grade A lapis lazuli, carnelian, sunstone, and pyrite. Strung on high-quality beading wire and fastened with a matching lobster claw clasp. Measures 20 inches in circumference. $80

As always, I offer holds and layaway. Check out my policies here and then message me through Etsy to set up a plan!

Eye of the Sun

The udjat is one of the best and widest known symbols from Egypt. This necklace is inspired by the power of the Eye of Horus and Eye of Ra in Ancient Egyptian/Kemetic mythology. Traditionally the left and right eyes, respectively, these symbols represented the personifications of power by the Gods Horus and Ra. Often associated with the moon (Horus) and the sun (Ra). In the case of Ra, this power was often personified by other deities, like Sekhmet, Bast(et), Hathor, Wadjet, Mut, Nekhbet, and others.
