Númenórean Penannular Brooch

Post by Odigan »

Over on the
Númenórean design motifs
thread, Caedmon had drawn up some nice penannular brooches. With his permission, last month I tackled bringing some of these into reality.

I've cast several of these but none are final yet, and I worked this example up with a placeholder pin. The completed version will be more elaborate. Bronze, about 3 in. (75 mm) in diameter.

Quite frankly jaw-dropping! You and Caedmon should be very proud because they look amazing. I don't know if you are for sure selling these but I would love love love to pick one up.

I was planning to enamel some of them, eventually.

an enamel would work well, you can get some good ones these days ranging from looking like metal to looking like inlayed gems

Oh - those are lovely!

... the enameling sounds awesome! Anglo-Saxon / Carologian inspiration there? I can't wait to see!
