House of Raven by luthien27 House of Raven by luthien27
When the House of Raven was all but annihilated by the Darklord, the only surviving heir was a little Princess, not more than a few days old. She was ferried away into the dark woods beyond the kingdom by the Bowman, one of the Guardians of the woods. As Raven was growing up, she knows nothing of her history except that she must at all times stay within the shadows of the woods, and wear an amulet so queer, that she often wondered what it was. She lived a happy, carefree life … until the day when she turned 16. On that day, Raven was told who she really was and what the amulet really meant.

When the King of the House of Raven knew what was to be the fate of his House, he had summoned the Elder Druids to counsel. They are to cast a spell on the magical book of the House of Raven, so that no one would find it except its rightful owner. The Elder Druids then thought of the most brilliant plan. They turned the book so small, that is would be unrecognizable even in plain sight! Satisfied by the plan, the King did the unthinkable. He cut off one of his arms, and asked the Elder Druids to turned it into a tiny wing so that a part of him may travel with his beloved daughter through her difficult journey ahead. Together, the book and the wing would accompany and protect Raven through her childhood years, and when she comes of age, they will help her return to power and claim her rightful place as heir to the Kingdom.

Raven must now embark on a quest with the Bowman to find the blind Seeress … who is the only one that could unmake the spell and turn the book back to its original form.

Included on this piece are a piece of Quartz crystal, a beautifully crafted Artisan Bead, a single aged brass wing, a piece of beautiful Picasso Jasper, a handmade miniature book in leather and coffee stained pages, and an old pen nib bound in copper and brass. Other materials : clay, paint, brass wires of various gauges, bits of silk, Howlite beads, glass bead, thread, other brass tone findings and chain.

* the necklace circumference is 17 inches. Hook is able to hook onto any of the links in the chain, therefore can be worn choker length. (if you need a longer chain extension please leave me a note or convo after purchase.)

* the pendant from circle to end of pen is 7 inches.

* Credits : Cross stitch on the book is inspired by the lovely work of Bibliographica
