I apologise for being so quiet – it’s been a bit of a busy time, as I’ve been commissioned to make items for people – ranging from raffle items to jewellery and paternosters. This will be a gratuitous item post.
This is a paternoster made for a friend of mine. She provided the grey beads and asked me to come up with something that would key into her heraldry. That’s where this paternoster came from. Strung on silk.
I made this for an auction at Horse and Falcons to benefit Unleashed, an animal shelter in my barony. It was inspired by late Italian and English jewellery. I used freshwater pearls and coral, as well as gold plated spacers on chain.
The earrings and the necklace are made for the Lilies Troll raffle, and I wanted something that looked Roman. The necklace still needs to be finished, but it’s nearly done. Freshwater pearls, coral, and quartz.
For my apprentice-brother, this paternoster is garnet and labradorite. He has a persona that is a monsignor, and as such, it would be appropriate to have some bling on his person.
