A striking necklace with a geometric design inspired by ancient Egyptian scarab beetles.

The necklace is part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Hieroglyphs: unlocking ancient Egypt.

This necklace is made in the UK from laser-cut acrylic mirror on a cotton cord and is finished with a gold-plated lobster clasp. The design is inspired by a scarab beetle with outstretched wings.

In ancient Egypt, the scarab dung beetle was associated with the rising sun and eternal existence. Ancient Egyptians witnessed scarab beetles pushing balls of dung up hills, and believed the sun to be propelled around the earth in the same way; pushed by a giant beetle. Scarabs were seen as powerful amulets, as they symbolised regeneration.

An eye-catching contemporary design based on ancient history.
