Egyptian play pendant

My son came home with a little plastic ruby that he found on the playground. He wanted me to make something with it. I was picturing the Mummy movie and the beetles in it. Cane up with this. Proofgrade walnut plywood. I left the masking on the beetle. I thought it looked neat. I’m sure it will fall off eventually.

Very cool! :sunglasses:
Could have really used a bunch of those at the Egyptian Archaeological Dig party I threw one year.

Awesome design…love that movie! Maybe that’s why I became a librarian…

Or maybe you meant the new Mummy movie that I pretend doesn’t exist. No Brendan Fraser? Not interested. :smirk:

Most excellent use of random found jewel… just hope it doesn’t awaken a mummy with a curse LOL

:wink: Something along the lines of this perhaps? (Us gals took our partying seriously back then.)

(That’s not me, that was one of the guests at the party. I had a pith helmet and tools.)

Sorry, Phil…will quit threadjacking now…you accidentally triggered a trip down memory lane. :smile:

Don’t we all.

@DesignsByPhil The masking peeling off can make it more weathered.
Looks great.

This is so fabulous! What a great thing to be able to find a trinket and turn it into a treasure.

I love these postings where people turn a found object into something fabulous. Great recycle!

I’d be very careful of uttering any words in an ancient Egyptian language. This looks powerful enough to cause some serious magic if not used carefully.

Side note: and discourse is seriously lacking in hieroglyphs and Egyptian emojis.
