Duh' ! What else? Come on now, I have a strong taste for egyptian artwork, its got to be obvious! I wish I really did buy this ring in Egypt, and if it was from Egypt, it would be 14k gold (OUCH! I'm allergic to gold!). So I made my own design while I dream of Egypt.
I captured this ring in the wire pattern ring project in the previous files here. It's the same band, with a touch up. The scarab is from the egyptian scarab project ring that calasped from using the old and new sterling silver and melting them together. I cut out the scarab from what was left of the ring (and I still have a piece of the band).
The trick with this ring, which I knew was going to be a pain. The band itself is .999 sterling silver, which means dead soft. It likes to melt before silver does. Though it doesn't really melt, it just gets red and soft under flames which allowed enough time for the scarab to melt the soldering points together with the ring. I had to forge and hammer the ring back into shape after melting.
The scarab is from a limited project. The wire ring can be made anytime. I'm debating if I should put this item up for sale or not. I need to find a source of scarab wax designs, once thats possible, I won't be as reluctant to sell this baby. I have more of these in stock, it can be done again. Please email for details if you should be interested.
