I'm prepping for a trip out to Manchester, NH for an SCA event (Birka, for those inclined).  There may or may not be mischief.  There will, however, be some periodesque jewellery and devotional items for sale.

Beads of Death - momento mori paternoster by zephyrofgod
Beads of Death - momento mori paternoster
Paternoster made of bone skull beads, glass beads, pewter and sterling silver charms, and strung on silk with a handmade silk tassel.

Avalon - wire, crystal, and moonstone mini coronet by zephyrofgod
Avalon - wire, crystal, and moonstone mini coronet
Made on a lark.

3 1/2 inches in diameter and 4 1/2 inches high from the base, this coronet uses crystal and moonstone wrapped using silver-plated copper wire on an aluminium wire base wrapped with more silver-plated copper wire.

To hold this crown in place, I have created four loops to be used to pin this coronet onto someone's head.

All Shall Be Well by zephyrofgod
All Shall Be Well
It's one of those times in our collective lives where we need a bit of reassurance, I think.  And this quote from Dame Julian of Norwich has always resonated with me.

I was inspired by 14th century English Books of Hours.

It's been a big year of travel.

On a whim, I was asked if I wanted to go visit the Middle East.

I got it cleared through work, and aside from travel woes (which may be a separate entry.  Haven't decided), it was a decent trip.  I got to see Himself and his mother.

I also got some pretty sweet photos, which have now been uploaded and are now prints.  I also got to go to the I. M. Pei-designed Museum of Islamic Art, and I'm inspired to create some SCA-period pieces inspired by the pieces I saw.

What's new in your world?

Hi. I needed to re-up my membership, and figured I might as well randomly give out another while there was a deal, and so I decided to gift it to an artist I know in the SCA... You!

A little SNAFU, though. It double-booked for 24-months. I have a service request to change that to the 12-month membership I had intended to get. If so, please enjoy dA-2015.

Thank you!

Something odd occurred with dA billing which took some time to straighten out. You'll now see that your account reflects my correct gift of 12 months (now 11). Have fun!

Things I like about Premium Membership: Featured Deviation widget. Ability to show more than four "Newest Deviations". Ability to add thumbnails to deviation descriptions to direct viewers to related content...
