Book of the Dead Scarab Bracelet

Book of the Dead Scarab Bracelet

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with Ancient Egypt; I was convinced I was going to be an Egyptologist when I grew up. Well, I’m not an Egyptologist, but I still am fascinated with Ancient Egypt. I love anything mysterious and magical. When I think of Egypt, I think about the 19th century Egyptian Revival style, and the magicians who have used Egyptian imagery and symbols. One of the most powerful of these symbols is the Scarab: according to the Egyptian Book of the Dead, a scarab amulet could stand in for one’s heart, which had to weigh lighter than the feather of truth to gain entrance to the afterlife. So, having a few scarabs in your jewellery collection couldn’t hurt! I have a matching necklace in the works.
