Well everyone basically said what I wanted to say! Great job on soldering, filing, cutting, and awesome coin! Nice to see the eye of ra symbol using something other then traditional lapis.

Beautiful lines, you did a gorgeous job updating the wadjet to make it sleeker and keep the elegance. And the addition of the old coin is just seriously cool ;)

Genius. :eyepopping:

I love ancient egyptian designs. I love how you combine an efficient minimalism with the grandiose styles of Egyptian art (e.g. silver and stainless instead of gold). It's a very unique look and I love the metals you've used too.

Oh no worries :D The Egyptians were pretty goth before goth was known to be goth...all preparatory for the Afterlife and all...so hehe naturally, I think nowadays we probably invest in a little of both...this-world and the after-world...depending on one's individual thoughts, naturally ;p Thus, steel and silver are a most appropriate and still dazzling choice. I'm all for minimalism (or at least efficiency) of design; the metals look great.

The metal is very sleek and clean and the rough texture of the coin complements that nicely.
