scarabs and last full day!
Many of you have been asking about the scarabs. Here are a few photos along with more photos of the goldsmiths. This trip has been amazing. I have learned a lot and seen a lot and had a wonderful time. The Egyptian people are so kind and generous. I love experiencing other cultures and lands and seeing how things work, at least from my perspective. I've met many local people who have all been so very kind offering meals, and showing me around. It's such a blessing to be able to travel and see the world.. I recommend it to everyone!!!
The scarabs are approximately 11mm X 8mm (one is bigger). 3 of them have inlaid lapis, one has inlaid garnet and 2 are engraved gold. The backs are just as amazing as the fronts. some of them have been hand pierced, and some stamped all are beautiful. the prices of these range between $200 and $300. They are all 18k gold. I only have these 6 so please email me if you are interested in a specific one.
