The Scarab beetle is the Egyptian symbol for eternity.  The ancient Egyptians believed the Egyptian god Khepri, Ra, renewed the sun every day, then rolled the sun above the horizon to carry it into the other world after sunset. Khepri as ra was often depicted as a scarab beetle or a man with a scarab beetle for a head.

The winged scarab beetle was a revered symbol in ancient Egypt. Worshipers believed the beetle brought about self-creation or rebirth.  The Scarabs beetle is often depicted holding a sun disk over their heads.  Scarab jewelty and amulets were popular in ancient Egypt.

Make paper necklaces, earrings, or a beaded curtain with paper jewelry patterns. Print and color the images then cut them out using sharp scissors. Make a hole with a hole punch to pass yarn or string through. For beaded jewelry, cut the strips along the solid lines. Roll them up and tape or paste the ends onto the roll.


Paper jewelry patterns children can and color are a great way to recycle paper. Children will enjoy making custom decorated paper brooches, charms, rings, or hanging mobiles and window ornaments with these designs.

Print the color book jewelry images on plain or colored paper. Color with Crayola Crayons, markers or colored pencils, or pre-color using your computer's graphics program and print on transparencies.  Use string or yarn to fashion necklaces, bracelets and earrings.
