So--I am going to forget about white bronze scarabs and use either bronze and, hopefully steel metal clays--the steel is still also iffy, or go back to actual metals. I have recently learned of oval dapping forms which, if I can get in the size that I am thinking of, might change this project to actual metal--probably sterling silver and Nu-gold, which is a brass alloy that somewhat resembles gold.
The necklaces on the top of the page are part of my "Talk Like an Egyptian" series of names in heiroglyphics. The black one reads "Anne", the yellow is "Jennifer" and the fuzzy green one reads "Shelly/Sherry". I have two rings in the series too, which I can't find the photos of and are currently (or hopefully sold!) in the gallery. If interested you can see them on my Goulash Designs Facebook page.
.....more Egypt coming soon!
