Egyptian Scarabs #Etsy

I did a treasury for Craft Britannia`s Shop of the Week and thought I would share these gorgeous creations with you.
The week`s shop is axevictimus. The owner, Tony, clearly loves creating with hard woods. It shows in the quality of his work. Do pop along to his shop and have a browse if you get the chance, it`s well worth a visit.
I browsed through his shop after looking through all the treasuries already done. What really drew me most of all was the necklace with the scarab beetle on it. I always think of Egypt when I see a scarab beetle.
I have a bracelet made in Egypt with scarab beetles all around it that belonged to my mother. As a young woman in the Womens Air Force she was stationed in Egypt and fell in love with it. She loved the country and anything to do with Egypt and bought the bracelet there, hence the association.
So having decided on which piece to use I looked for more scarab beetles on Etsy and was totally amazed by the amount I found. The first sixteen came from the treasury and the other two were extra additions. I hope you enjoy this today as much as I enjoyed it.
Time to rhyme.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

A scarab beetle should be scary
beetles make most people wary.
But these ones are kind of cute
and they look great to boot.
So many things they do adorn
many that can be worn.
Jewellery in the Steampunk style,
so glamorous it makes you smile.
The Cufflinks and Tiepin
for Fathers Day would be a win.
So much with this Egyptian flavour
so many delights to savour.
With Egypt I think of sand
shifting and covering the land.
Pyramids that tower so high
a miracle to make you sigh.
The Sphinx guarding the tomb
so majestic even in the gloom
of the night. Watching over all
so still, so silent, so tall.
The heat of the burning sun
doesn`t abate till day is done.
Such a place has so much history
and much of it shrouded in mystery!!
