Being able to work on this was truly a joy. The work that Count Logan has done in researching banners and then teaching others, well . . . he gets it. And his work truly is amazing. When I started researching things for his scroll, I knew I wanted to do one of two things: … Continue reading Logan’s Silver Hammer
This is actually a project from last year (December!) that I've finally got some time to blog about now. I got a scroll assignment from the Royal Scribe for Damien and Issabell and I was immediately inspired to Do Something Cool. Plan 1: do a runestone. I should preface this with I was on furlough … Continue reading Snorri’s Hammer Scroll, or how to pick your battles
I mentioned in Teaser! that I had a lot of secret projects. And most of them came to fruition yesterday. So, this post will be all about those secret projects. My house has been the Pelican medallion factory as of late. One of those was presented last week at Master Mathurin's ceremony. It's small, about … Continue reading Secret Project Roundup

While true for rings, I am pleased to say that simple facets are indeed quite period on items such as beads and even creating a flat table for intaglio (which, yes, is a facet).

As I can't make all of them myself, this entry will serve as a way for those who … Continue reading Making Norse Festoon Dangles

I've also been working on some other items, so come along with me on what I've been doing so far. First thing up is researching small token items that Her Highness could give out. After putting … Continue reading Sailing Northward
Something I made last year, but I couldn't blog about until it got to its intended location! As I've stated elsewhere, I started Nobelese Largesse, and one of the sister swaps, on the kingdom level recently got restarted in Æthelmearc. So, I signed up with permission of Baroness Oddkatla, who runs it, and received the … Continue reading Hon Hoard and Norse Quartz
So, I've got a couple of swaps (Noblesse Largesse and EKAE) that I'm participating in, and I'm working through some ideas. Sometimes, when I work through ideas, that means I do some experimentation. These are posaments, used by the Norse as an additional level of bling. Found largely in the Birka finds, posaments varied in … Continue reading Norse Bling!
