Scarab amulets were worn as protection against the dangers of this world and the afterlife. The scarab represented the sun god Ra that rolled across the sky each day. Between the 16th and 11th- century heart scarabs were created to be placed on a mummy’s heart. When a person reached the afterlife their heart was weighed by the goddess of truth. If the heart was heavy with sin they could not move forward to the afterlife. The heart scarab would convince the gods that the person was trustworthy and should move into the afterlife without having their heart weighed. Other heart scarabs were used as general protection to the afterlife.

Electroforming is the intricate process of using electricity to "grow" copper on to another medium. During this phase the copper will grow as it pleases giving each piece its own unique textures and character. Each piece requires 24+ hours to fully form and no two pieces will ever form the same.
As Copper is a conductor of heat and electricity, it is also considered a conductor of one’s spiritual energy, moving it back and forth between people, auras, crystals, and the spirit world. Said to be able to amplify one’s thoughts, sending and receiving psychic communication.
