Five Great Gifts For Giving: List I 2016

Good Morning,

Today I would like to share five unique gift ideas from five unique shops.

From: Bracken Designs

Two Dragon Large Copper Ring with Amber and Silver Accents

The gods only go with you if you put yourself in their path. And that takes courage. ((Mary Stewart, The Crystal Cave)

This large saddle-style ring is an attention getter.

One of my favorite books as a child was "The Crystal Cave" by Mary Stewart.  The design of this ring was inspired by the part where young Merlin has a vision of the two dragons battling for power.

I added a bezel set Amber stone in the center and two fine silver embellishments at the tail of each dragon.

The band has my maker's mark and a leaf imprint in sterling silver.

The band on this ring is a smidge over 3/8ths of an inch wide.  That's very important when it comes to sizing because most people "size" their fingers for rings with very slender bands.  The part of your finger between the knuckle and the bottom of your finger is fattier than where narrow rings rest.  So please have THAT part of your finger measured for size.

The interior measurement of this ring is approximately size 9 and it JUST fits on my finger that is a size 8.

The ring cannot be sized up or down.

Wolf Skull Necklace with Tribal Design - Bronze, on Leather

 My Wolf Skull. Got teeth?

It is with a broad smile and no small flourish that I present my newest skull, the Gray Wolf. I've loved the wolf for as long as I can remember and it was no small feat to do this incredible creature the justice I felt it deserves. This wolf skull is meticulously detailed right down to its infamous teeth in those powerful jaws, and from every angle it looks stunning. The top of the skull is detailed with a Lost Apostle tribal motif to add to the strength and individualism of this piece, and I think it really adds to the spirit of the skull.

It measures 35mm from its canines to the back of the skull, 18mm wide across the eye orbits and about 20mm from the base of the jaw to the top of the skull. It's a fantastic size for, quite honestly, an awesome pendant. This skull is hung on approximately 1 meter of the finest Spanish brown leather, and also come with an all-original Lost Apostle bronze clasp. To see this clasp in action, please follow the link below.

Completely hand carved, this skull was then cast in the finest jewelers bronze. A patina was then applied to bring out all the fine detailing covering the skull and finally it was carefully polished to bring out the warmth and lustre of the bronze. As with all our jewelry, there's no need to worry about it tarnishing as all our pieces are protected to maintain the shine.

Cute this Wolf Skull definitely ain't.
