Created with Ultra Fractal 5.03. Imported images, which were manipulated further within UF, were used on parts of this image. Full size viewing recommended, for the details!
I thought I would try and create a different basic shape to the jewels and a sparkly, faceted look for this one. The gold setting reminds me (vaguely) of scarab shapes, hence the title.
bulletgreen: Other images in this jewel series that you might enjoy can be found in my Fractal Jewels gallery here: [link] We all need more time so to anyone who may 'fave and run' on this piece or any other: thank you in advance.
