Scarabee Collier by ilkela Scarabee Collier by ilkela
Scarabée Collier is inspired by the work of Rene Lalique, whose beautiful and florid designs informed the ideals of beauty around the turn of the 20th century. By appropriating Lalique’s motifs of plants and insects, then over-sizing and further stylizing them, this work attempts to emphasize and accentuate the natural beauty and curves of the female form, while fusing the aesthetics of the past with the contemporary.

pewter, sterling silver, nickel, jewel beetle shell

To everyone who's asked: I have taken photos of it on, but they are much too racy (due to the size of the piece) for me to be comfortable posting them. Sorry!
