Here’s a pair of hangies for the lovely Alice Ofthedead that I’ve been working on the past week!
I loved making these and I think the peachy color of the stones and golden brass is such a great combination.
Blacksmith Ric Furrer in his workshop holding his crucible steel Ulfberht blade. It has almost been a 1000 years since a metallugically accurate Ulfberht has been made. Ric heated the blade in a traditional brick forge. Ulfberht were the best Viking swords ever crafted, the blades had very little slag and were meant to bend while in use. Only 171 real Ulfberht swords have ever been recovered.
Here’s some elegant brass rings I’ve made that are great wearing on their own, or to stack like ragnarök is just around the corner!
Find them on my etsy shop! (There’s a discount if you buy three at a time *winkwink*)
Kiss the rings, bitch.
