Sapphire Scarabs by Velvet--Glove Sapphire Scarabs by Velvet--Glove
Created with Ultra Fractal 5.03. Imported images, which were manipulated further within UF, were used on parts of this image.

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. :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-07-23
=Velvet--Glove is a fractal jewelsmith. Her incredible Sapphire Scarabs goes beyond the standard circular Ultra-fractal jewels into actual faceted sapphires with intricate scarab-beetle settings. The composition is flawless. ( Featured by NatalieKelsey )

The gems, more than polished stones, are my favourite. Love this piece :heart:
