Handcrafted original Beetle earrings inspired by Neith, an ancient Egyptian mother goddess associated with fertility, wisdom and war, and considered by the Egyptians to be one of the oldest of beings. ‘Neith’ may be interpreted as meaning water, thus personifying the primordial waters of creation. The click beetle was an original symbol of Neith, since they are usually found near water, and its thorax is shaped like the shield of ancient soldiers.
The Ark Collection reflects our desire to connect with these animal totems and carry with us the qualities they embody.
