My girlfriend is (as me) a big fan of everything Tolkien =D. She made these Laurelin and Telperion inspired pendants. What do you guys think? I just love the whole Silmarillion mythology, it's... for the lack of a better word, magical :).

They're beautiful. She's very talented.

And yes, The Silmarillion is an excellent source of inspiration.

I agree. The whole mythology Tolkien created is just... for the lack of a better word, wow. Thank you for your compliments. She made another one/new design. She's unstoppable :D. Image

This is beautiful! She's a powerhouse.Have you guys thought about selling them at markets? My ex girlfriend used to make jewelery which was fantasy themed, it was cool becuase I read a lot of fantasy series and everytime I came acorss a story with a piece of jewelery in it she'd try and create it from the description. she just made an ecommerce website with these guys: https://www.1and1.com/ecommerce-website and connected it to ebay. I don't think she's doing it anymore, but we broke up so I can't ask, but it was fun! You guys should make more.

Sorry for such a late reply, but the last two months were so busy :!:

She made a new version of the trees and I think they' re very beautiful. The Silmarillion is such an inspiration :).

She does sell them, has an Etsy store, if you want I can private message you the link (I would publish it here, but I don't want to appear spammy on the forum :) )

Thanks for your kind words :) .

Perhaps if you post the name of her shop, then people can search for it. Saves you posting the link and also messaging lots of people. :-)

She made some new Trees of Valinor inspired items, my favorites by far is the ones with labradorite gemstones (the last two pictures). What do you guys think? :)
