|A third DD and the present for a great friend...|
I love my work, which is...art. In many forms and ways.|
I live for it and of it and times can be hard and times can be fun, but my life is a ever=shifting curious thing and most of the time, I like it that way.
It shows in my art...I tend to jump through techniques and themes and you'll rarely see me do the same thing twice, except on "popular demand"...or if someone orders it-girl has to eat Yeah, I do commissions, ask if interested.

Personal Quote: Pain makes you rise or fall...
According to the myth, to obtain the runes, Odin:”… hung on the Yggdrasil tree for nine days and nights and was pierced by a spear. He fasted during this whole ordeal. He also pawned one of his eyes for a drink of the Spring of Mimir…”
Let’s say they’re somewhat easier to get now…or at least the ones I made!

The bag is made out of faux soft leather and a cord with two handmade beads. It contain 24 miniature faux stone plates (fimo). These plates measure 6 x 4 mm or 0.23 x 0.15 inch each, with all the runes of so called upper futhark engraved on them.
The miniature book is 1.8 cm high, 1.5 wide (0.70 x 0.59 inch) and contains 24 tea dyed pages with all the runes and their names done in ink, plus the hand marbled endpapers. Book is saddle stitched, hard covered and bound in faux leather, silvered with silver leaf. There is a hand-woven, permanently attached bookmark with the silvered shield knot on one end. Shield knot is present on the spine as well.
