Scarab sounds better than dung beetle

Baby sis Rikki Tikki Tavi and I organized her closet last weekend and our favorite activity was rooting through her jewelry. We found her long forgotten gold scarab memento from the 1977 touring King Tut exhibit while at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Rikki is not fan of gold so I strung it with white beads and pearls for a quick revamp. I think it looks cool but not sure she's sold on it . . . thinking a fancy gold dung beetle is in my future.

Very pretty! I really like the beaded necklace. Did you know that the egyptians believed that the sun moved across the sky because a beetle pushed it like it's ball of dung? The Egyptians were awesome!
