This is the sixth piece that I entered to the Guild of Enamellers. It was sort of Egyptian inspired. The sunburst and scarabs beetles are all symbols of resurrection and life with the eye of Horus on the back for protection. Hence the name Eternity. The little scarab beetles were a real challenge to enamel. I wanted to get a lifelike look (they were moulded from real beetles - dead of course!!) and used mica lustre powders fused to the surface to get some of the iridescence of the actual beetles. It is on a handmade silver chain.
