Symbols of the scarab were well known for their powers, which were adopted by many different cultures and religions. Buddhism, Taoism, Old Europe, India, Iran and the Roman empire are examples of just a few. There are many stories and extensions to scarabs and their special qualities throughout ancient history. To date, thousands upon thousands of relics bearing the symbol have been found in Egypt alone. Most often, they have been engraved with a beneficial inscription, which enhances their auspicious power.
The Ancient Egyptians believed the scarab was a magical creature believed to imbue particular protective powers that warded off evil and provided good fortune for the owner in this life. The winged scarab was more particular to providing protective powers for one’s safe journey.
Jewelry with scarabs, no matter what their category, represented magical properties and were sacred emblems of Egyptian religious beliefs. In the Greco-Roman period, scarabs were sanctified by elaborate sacred rituals known as the “Ceremony of the Beetle.”

Dream Catcher – Native Americans, with their many tribes, have a mysterious and mystical energy that is so engulfing and fascinating to learn more about. In their universal culture there are so many symbols. Although every culture has ancient symbols and forms of communication, Native Americans, I feel, are exceptionally in tune with nature and the voice of mother nature.
Dream Catcher & Native American Collection
Native American- Also referred to as Indigenous People, who belong to different tribes and different ethnic groups. Native American perception typically insists that all things are somehow connected. Certain Native tribes recognized a third gender separate from female and male. It’s one whose body had both masculine and feminine spirits simultaneously. They are “two-spirited”. They are treated with respect and often considered sacred. Also, historically, male and female roles have been considered equal; Something you don’t typically read about among the ancient cultures. History books say that Native Americans have been living on the American continent since 12,000 B.C.
It’s a different interpretation of the evil eye. It’s a belief that your third eye exists. Some cultures believe it’s located behind your neck, some believe it’s in the center of your palm…but most believe its in-between your two eyes. Regardless, you can’t see it. But I feel it sees everything! It’s an extension of your intuition, insight, gut feeling, and inner intelligence. That’s why I designed the eye closed and not open. It’s symbolic because you need to trust yourself.
Third Eye Collection
I’m just learning and starting to trust myself. When my son was born, he didn’t open his eyes for the first 6 weeks. I was fascinated on how he found my breast and from touch knew when it was me or someone else holding him. That really inspired me. I know there is a medical explanation to this. But it was the starting point to my “inner eye” fascination. So now I am working on a collection with this design and utilizing different stones to signify and accentuate the desired feeling. It’s the “eye/I see you with— “strength”, “courage”, “love”, “purity”, and so on. An eye that has the clarity of white diamonds, the center to show color, vitality, personality, and the black lashes to complete the balance within yourself and nature.
