Looking for scarabs -- Scratch that, QUALITY


#1

Greetings,

Well now, being the history conscious wire-wrappers that we are,
we are always attempting to create more jewelry with an Egyptian
motif.

We’ve been looking for scarabs, but have only found poor quality
carvings from the lowest grade materials.

Does anyone out there have any idea where we might purchase some
12 x 16mm to 22 x 30mm nice quality scarabs?

Or does anyone know of a “pattern” for a scarab. My husband does
all of our cabbing, so if I could learn to carve/engrave a scarab,
I would be glad to give it a try!

Thanks for your help!
