Of Viking Ancestors by tishaia Of Viking Ancestors by tishaia
The main idea I had for this piece was to make something looking like an heirloom, old and heavy, that would have double Algiz protective rune incorporated on it (my endless fangilrling over Vikings' Lagertha is showing ;D).

The pendant is quite big, 43x33 mm (1.7x1.3 in) and on a heavy 60 cm (23.5 in) chain. I started with making a cabochon in bordeaux and purple color gradient and making the shape of double Algiz rune (the same Lagertha has on her shield :D) with 11 purple Swarovski zirconias. The added details in metallic clay, I tried to make as similar in color to the metal parts as possible, add a little sophistication to the simple design. 
I imagine it is a heirloom a proud daughter of vikings would wear being a guest in european royal courts.

EDIT: I got corrected on tumblr that the rune is actually double Fehu not double Algiz. Sorry for my mistake! :)

Wow, Tish. This piece is just stunning. Love the colour choices and your particular brand of appliqué really makes this design unique.
I am really impressed by your recent work, keep experimenting, you really do have amazing talent.
Hugs!

Ahhh! Thank you so much! I love to learn new things but I'm always shy about how the particular items turn out when I dont really know the technique. Thank you! <33
