Coloured Scarabs are well Done
by: June

Heah Andrew - how is the colour applied that you see on the surface of the scarab beetle dangles? Glass overlay, enamel or is it also in mosaic? Thanks June

Micromosaic Italian Jewelry
by: Porsha

Hi Andrew
Very interesting piece! The letters - FAP are associated with an Italian origin in the Victorian era. Wearing micromosaic jewelry became popular during the Grand Tour period (17th - 19th Century). Members of rich European families would travel around Europe, taking in the sights and cultures of different countries. Italy was a very popular tourist spot as it had a long and prestigious history in arts and culture. It was also a famous glass producer, and canny Italian craftsmen quickly turned their glass making skills to making stunning miniature micromosaic pictures for their rich visitors. Its fascinating to see the Ancient Egyptian Scarab Beetles with the Micromosiac Rosettes. Regards Porsha
