CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
It is made of sterling silver (925) handmade in my workshop.
This necklace is in the shape of a crescent moon and it is inspired by the symbols of the ancient Egypt with a little futuristic inspiration taken from the Steampunk universe. It represents a scarab which body is formed by a blue green oval turquoise and which head and legs are made of sterling silver wire.
In the Antique Egypt, scarab is an important symbol. It represents the sun and its race, symbol of live, rebirth and protection of the livings.
As for turquoise, it is a stone that always fascinated Egyptians and that you will find a lot in their jewelry. It was also used for its color pigment. They would think than turquoise blue was the representation of the aquatic universe of the Nile that gives life to everything.
These two elements, turquoise and the scarab refer to important Egyptian symbols, to the concept of life and death. Even though these are ancient symbols, this necklace is kind of futuristic with the representation of the scarab and the use of sterling silver. On this jewel, we almost have the pattern of an electronic circuit.
Therefore, I needed the name of a queen to wear this pendant, a famous queen from the future, from a kind of steampunk universe, worthy of Egyptian queens. I therefore thought of the queen Padmé Amidaa of the Star Wars Univese, interpreted by Natalie Portman.
It is made of a very thin sterling silver chain and a pendant bezel set with a green tone turquoise. The pendant has been hand sawed in the shape of a half moon and was decorated with a tribal design all around the cabochon.
It measures 50 cm long (19.685 inches).
Pendant: 3.4 x 2 cm (1.181 x 0.787 inches)
