amulet of kynareth. by felrokker amulet of kynareth. by felrokker
I've made this pendant a while back - almost half a year ago - but had to give it a second paintjob because the original was already scraping off. No wonder, ever since it was made, I've been wearing it almost every day!

Polymer clay and a small piece of real turquoise (that was an expensive little bitch)

(the truth is, the upper half of the pendant looked much better until a little accident happened 5 minutes before baking the clay - I didn't want to start the whole thing over anymore so I just fixed it quickly and tossed it in the already preheated oven...)

It's already much better than the first pendant I made though, I guess there is improvement? smithing increased to 51?

Interesting fact: since I started wearing this, people start coming up to me asking what it stands for... as if they somehow knew it had a symbolic significance. I just think that's slightly odd, I mean - "nice necklace, where did you get it?" is a quite ordinary thing to ask, "nice necklace, what does it symbolize?" is not really, and yet it literally keeps happening???

I have a hard time trying to explain my devotion towards the Way of the Voice to these people, so I just say it's just an ordinary pendant, found the pattern on the internet and made it for myself - if you knew, you would probably recognize it anyway, wouldn't you?

kyne with y'all mofos, and enjoy :blowkiss:

wooow! I, actually, can't imagine how much efforts are needed to make amulets like this. Good job!!

Thank you so much! I'm so glad you liked, and thanks for the fav as well! :hug:
It did take me a couple of hours and a few tries to get it right, this is actually the second amulet that I have made, the first turned out a little bit wobbly and asymmetrical :D
I am quite proud of how this one turned out though :aww:
Awesome and amazing work.

Good idea. I'd make a piece of Morrowind or Skyrim jewelry but it'd be tough to decide which; Moon-And-Star would be the obvious choice but I hate wearing rings, and though I like the Amulet of Mara I'd never be able to wear it anywhere that people might actually know what it was, in case someone got the wrong idea :XD:

I'd say, go for it! If someone notices your Amulet of Mara, you can still tell them you are "not interested". :D

I'm actually planning on trying to attempt this and personally this is one of the better ones I have seen. It's looks really good.
You wouldn't happen to have any tips you'd be willing to share would you?

Thank you very much for the kind words! :hug: I have to confess I am no pro but I sure can tell you how I made it, maybe that will help.

I think it's important that it was all made of one piece, I first formed the clay to shape, THEN added the gem, and afterwards carved the lines into it. I used tiny sculpting tools like this [link] which you have a lot of luck to find in shops that sell models and modelling tools. I already had some at hand but they are not necessary, you can use anything you find that is thicker than a needle and thinner than a match.

The top part where the leather goes in was shaped from a rectangle, I took a stick of some kind, maybe a pencil(don't clearly remember) rolled the rectangle up like a tube, shaped it accordingly and the stick was only removed when the clay was baked.

The clay was black and to paint it, I used acrylics and a bit of spray varnish on top. That's about all I can say right now but if you have something more specific on your mind just ask and I'll be glad to help.
