Erykah Badu has been one of my top clients for 10 years.
She and I are both intrigued by spiritual teachings
and symbols of enlightenment.
Below are images of the Khepera Cuff bracelets
I recently crafted for her by hand. Also known as Scarab,
large dung beetles from the eastern Mediterranean
and regarded as sacred in Ancient Khamit/Egypt.
Khepera is the manifestation of the rising sun,
rolling the sun along the sky.
Khepera also has the attributes of
self generation, self renewal and to become.
Cuffs are made of Sterling Silver with a
high polish finish.
I design a pattern to fit her wrists perfectly before
cutting the final pieces out of metal.
Below are images of Badu wearing classic
LWest pieces I designed custom for
her throughout the years. She owns dozens
more that I'll share during my
Vault page launch coming soon..
