Medallions

My house, lately, has been the medallion factory. Commissioned by my Pelican, I made these two pieces.  I’ll also be showing the bits that I’m not proud of (because it keeps me humble), so there’s going to be things that … Continue reading

Roman Glass Hairpins and part of Project Flammen

That being said, I still needed to make parts for my hair: a pin to keep my suffibulum (that’s the semi-circular veil thing), and a hairpin to keep my hair in place (because I also attempted the seni crines hairstyle, and that requires the use of an acus; a Roman hairpin), too. Continue reading

Aline’s Laurel Paternoster

First, a bit of silly.  (also, reasons why I really shouldn’t be allowed into Photoshop #478, and major apologies to Allie Brosh of Hyperbole and a Half). Ahem. Anyway, so, my friend Aline was elevated to the Laurel this weekend … Continue reading

Queen’s Prize AS XLIX

Over the weekend was Queen’s Prize Tournament, which is a time for Calontir artists that do not already have a Grant of Arms or above (so, Laurels, Silver Hammers, and Calon Lilies cannot participate as an entrant) to make something … Continue reading
