Blue Scarabs-> Inspired by Glam Chameleon Jewelry

Glam Chameleon Jewelry blue scarab blue beads green crystals necklace

Scarab, sacred beetle, is one of the most popular amulets in ancient Egypt, while a self-created Egyptian god in this form was called Khepri. Scarab is a symbol of rebirth, fertility, the soul and the sun. It can be seen in the decoration of Egyptian tombs, manuscripts, hieroglyphic works (often shown with solar disk over the heads), as well as a part of beautiful jewelry pieces- necklaces, bracelets, wrist cuffs, decorative collars... An example is the bracelet found in the tomb of Tutankhamun. It has been proved that some mummies had a scarab under their bandages that was placed on the chest in order to ensure the re-birth of the deceased in the next/other world.
** Blue scarabs used in making of Glam Chameleon Jewelry necklaces are the inspiration for today's post, and the whole story is fashionably completed with the runway looks from the spring-summer 2012 collections (Peter Som, Bottega Veneta, Luca Luca, Ungaro, Badgley Mischka ...).

Skarabej, sveta buba, je jedna od najpoznatijih staroegipatskih amajlija, a samozvani egipatski bog u ovom obliku je nosio naziv Kepri (Khepri). Skarabej predstavlja simbol ponovnog radjanja, plodnosti, duse i sunca. Moze se videti na dekoraciji egipatskih grobnica, skriptama, hijeroglifskim delima (vrlo cesto sa prikazanim suncevim diskom iznad glave), kao i na bogatim komadima nakita- ogrlice, narukvice, dekorativne kragne... Primer je narukvica pronadjena u grobu vladara Tutankamona. Dokazano je da su mumije ispod svojih zavoja imale skarabej koji je bio postavljen u predelu grudi sa ciljem da pokojniku obezbedi ponovno radanje na onom svetu.
** Plavi skarabeji korisceni u izradi Glam Chameleon Jewelry ogrlica su inspiracija za danasnji post, a cela prica je modno upotpunjena delovima kolekcija za prolece-leto 2012 (Peter Som, Bottega Veneta, Luca Luca, Ungaro, Badgley Mischka...).
