I was really happy to organize the Laurel’s New Works display at Festival of the Snow Eaters in late October just north of Lethbridge. I had hoped that it would be a really great opportunity for the people of the Incipient Shire of Windwyrm to meet some of the kingdom’s Laurels, see their work, ask them questions, and learn more about their process. I know that often enough, people in the shire find it difficult to get to as many events as those of us in the baronies, and thus have less of a chance to meet the Peers.
I have a very simple Viking Knit chain to show off today, made of 24 gauge silver-plated copper wire, drawn down to approximately 7 mm in diameter. It’s finished off with a hand-made silver-plated copper (18 gauge) ring closed with spiral-wrapped ends, and was made using the single-knit technique.
I’m donating it to the Avacal Online Auction with proceeds going towards the Kingdom travel and general fund. If you’re interested in bidding, click the link and check it out! (Along with all the other beautiful things made by members of the soon-to-be kingdom.) The specific link to my necklace is here: Trichinopoly Chain
It is 25 ” / 63.5 cm long, including the ring. I made it this length so that it would fit over large heads, but not hang TOO low. The length means it doesn’t need an additional (non-period) clasp. It can be shortened, if you unwrap/open the ring.
The dressform I’ve photographed the chain on is a child-size form, in the photo above I’m wearing the chain. (and photoshopped out my scar..)
The photo above shows the chain with a pendant clipped on; I’m not offering up the pendant with the auction, it’s just for illustration purposes.
