I've written in the last entry that Calontir is in a Norse reign, and as a result of that, I got to do some research in bits and pieces for Her Majesty Ylva to give as tokens. 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
The upcoming reign in Calontir is a Norse one, and I've been assisting a bit in researching largesse items. 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
I frequently am asked about where I get my supplies for paternosters. This post will serve as a source page, and also show where I generally poke around for suppliers. Of course, this is not the end-all of suppliers, but I have found that these suppliers are easy to work with, and are budget-friendly. I'll … Continue reading Paternoster Supplies
Hon Hoard and Norse Quartz
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
Back from Birka!
I am back from Birka! It was a wonderful event, and it was lovely being able to spend it with good friends. I got to meet my apprentice-sister Iulia (that's us all gussied up on the right), geek a bit about beads and paternosters, and have a lot of fun. I also received my awesome … Continue reading Back from Birka!
A Torse is a Torse, of course, of course
This past weekend was Winter Coronation for Anton III and Isabeau III, with a Torse in any Medium contest. Having just gotten a Dremel for Christmas, and as I had a large piece of copal to experiment on, it was a great chance to try something new. The copal was sourced from a family friend … Continue reading A Torse is a Torse, of course, of course
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 at Kris Kinder, which is Calontir's biggest shopping event. When she was announced at Pennsic, … Continue reading Aline’s Laurel Paternoster
Beads of Death and memento mori
Another early #MedievalMonday post. Given how close we are to Halloween, and after a quick cleaning of my studio, I stumbled upon some bone skull beads that were gifted to me and got hit with a bit of inspiration. One of my favourite SCA blogs has been Paternoster Row, written by Dame Christian de Holacomb, … Continue reading Beads of Death and memento mori
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 and get feedback from judges. I've been making glass-headed pins since I got my Hot … Continue reading Queen’s Prize AS XLIX
Pennsic Largesse Roundup!
For the second Pennsic in a row, I've been asked to contribute something to the Pennsic gift basket. This year's recipient was Caid. Conveniently, Knowne World Heraldic and Scribal Symposium was also in Caid! So, I had a mission in addition to the classes I taught - I had to figure out what Their Majesties … Continue reading Pennsic Largesse Roundup!
