“Love exotic themes”


Description from Polly Z: The rich colors and textures remind me of faraway places like Egypt. Since I have never been there, my imagination is that much more vivid. Egyptians carved small pieces–vases, amulets, images of deities, animals and other objects–and covered them with green, blue, and occasionally red, yellow, and white enamel, which when baked became brilliant and enduring, such as the beads and stones here in Lima Beads. Like an exotic getaway!

    I *love* this Polly! Back in the day when I was young and foolish and adventurous, I thought I wanted to be an Egyptologist and discover stuff. Then I realized it was hot and dusty in the desert. It would have been fun, but I’m glad I re-thought my career decision!

    Your pick has all the right elements: lotus and scarab and bright sun. And how they loved their cats!

    Hey J. Shane, you probably love Amelia Peabody mysteries by Elizabeth Peters. I too fantasized about that, but having lived in Phoenix for 19 years I came to realize that temps of 110 degrees is not compatible with my preferences for romance and adventure. Oh well, we can dream though can’t we? I love scarabs and ankh in jewelry.

    What lovely picks – I too wanted to travel to Egypt – and I wanted to ride a camel. Oh well. I rode a horse once, that will have to do. Congrats on the POD!
