Cuff of Kings by luthien27
Cuff of Kings
Anyone who knows me would know that I'm a fantasy buff. Lord of the Rings being first on my list. So it goes without saying that after I caught the last installment of The Hobbit in the cinemas, I had to make something!

I was particularly attracted to the trademarks of each of the characters in the story. How different people would react differently, sometimes even on the verge of shocking, when put into different situations. All the Kings led, but they all led in their own ways, influenced by their experiences and basic character traits. I cannot say I liked how the 2 Kings in there dealt with certain circumstances, but they did what felt right for them. And they did redeem themselves in the end. One character who wasn't King at first, turned out to be the most selfless, righteous and courageous leader by the end. Bard. It shows that 'royal' don't have to run in your veins for you to be a true leader. In fact, most times it's the opposite that holds true.
So … for Thorin - son of Thrain, Thranduil - King of the Woodland Realm and no less of a great leader, Bard – the Dragon Slayer ... the Cuff of Kings.

This mixed media cuff is made from leather, fabric, brass stampings, brass sheets, and old escutcheon, old clock and watch gears, paper, patina, resin, cotton thread, brass wires and a piece of rustic veined Picasso Jasper. Components are attached together with wire and rivets.

* The cuff is 7.5 inches on the inner circumference. It is a thick cuff at 2.25 inch width, as such it should be able to fit a wrist between 6 to 6.75 inch in circumference.

FarawayTales by luthien27
FarawayTales
“Once upon a time,
In a land far far away ...”

As a child I have always been fascinated with these 2 lines. These 2 simple lines transported me to places that only exist in dreams … my dreams. I am sure many children have the same dreams and visions as I. Unfortunately, most lose this magic as they grow up, sucked away by society's cruel formality and expectations. I am one of the lucky ones who held onto my 'once upon a time' and my 'land far far away'. I am one of the lucky ones who wasn't in any way forced into submission to society's standards. I hope my faraway lands, continue to exist in my 2 little girls' dreams for a long long time …

This piece of mixed media looks ravaged by time - the lands and kingdoms it houses, are long forgotten. Its storybook, old and charred. Yet there is hope. For within those pages lie tales upon tales of courage, bravery, magic, adventures and great journeys. Within that dusty glass, lie far far away lands waiting to be explored once again … by anyone, adult or child, who would pick up that key and unlock the magic within …

Materials :
Copper, Brass, Paper, Resin, Paint, Leather, Old Key, Howlite, Variscite, Solder, Magic, Dreams, Hope, Love.

* this necklace wears 18 inches round the neck
* the pendant is 5.5 inch from bail to end of key
* Solder contains no lead, cadmium or antimony. Anti toxic and conforms to pure food laws.
