Beaded Wolf Necklaces

Beaded Wolf Necklaces

My status as a cub (or pledge) of the Wolves of Cernunnos fighting company is a pretty awesome, pretty interesting thing! My actual Wolf (or sponsor) is Feldon; he lives very far away from me in Raven’s Nest (of Polaris). I live in the Crown Lands of the Iron Mountains! We’ve never actually met face-to-face, but we’ve talked extensively online and have a lot of interests in common. The fact that he took me as his cub without having even met me in person is incredible, and I love him very much.

That said, I have a foster-Wolf here in the IMD, Trillyon, whom I hang out with a lot and also have a great relationship with. She is so kind and always takes me to do things, and she even hosted a birthday party for me earlier this month! I’ve been wanting to do something special for her for some time now, and I finally found a project worthy of that cause a few days ago. I love to make beaded necklaces and such, and I happened upon some adorable howling wolf beads; there were exactly two left! I picked them up, of course, and then collected some nice beads to compliment them.

Here are some pictures of the two necklaces (one for her and one for me) . . .

I figure it’s pretty obvious, but her necklace has the big wolf and mine has the little one! Hopefully it’s not too too dorky haha . . .  I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make these, the beads were way too perfect!


Pumyra’s Floral Wreath

Pumyra's Floral Wreath

I’ve been going to the Ren. Faire ever since I can remember, nearly every year, but I’ve never found a floral wreath that I really love. I don’t know why, but I got a crafting bug bite and felt the need to make one! I ended up finding a great tutorial in order to do so, found all of the elements I’ve always dreamed of, and then crafted it! I think it turned out really well, too.

Here are some pictures of the finished project . . .

The flowers I chose for myself are my very favorites: Blue roses and white tulips (tulips, unfortunately, do not occur in any shade of blue, at least not naturally—and blue is my favorite color, too). In addition to the flowers, I also used pine boughs to represent my ties to and love of Colorado.

My woman-at-arms sister, Locks, likes this silly thing well enough that she asked me to make one for her! Stay tuned, if you’d like, because I’ll eventually be posting it to this blog (after I find the time to make it, that is).
