Flame Shield - Eiwaz by AriTheNorseman Flame Shield - Eiwaz by AriTheNorseman
Bright and anodized (red, white) aluminum rings in 18ga 3/16" ID and 20ga 3/32" ID; small anodized aluminum scales (red, orange). European 4-1 and basic scale weave (J4-1).

One of my bigger projects since the wedding; made using [link] as a template for the scale inlay, a blank 5x5 piece of E4-1 for the bracelet inlay, and the rings were just winging it :XD:. This is the left half of a two-hand set.

Inlays are all Elder Futhark runes (except the rings, generic zig-zag); Eiwaz "defense" in the scales, (not really shown) Gebo-Algiz-Kano-Mannaz in the bracelet (runic shorthand for a poem/blessing, but that's a secret ;)).

Counterpart, "sword": [link]
Ring close-up (right hand): [link]
Together: [link]

THAT'S IT!!!!! :nuu: I do NOT know what to get man XDD I really wanna buy something from you!!!!!!!! YOU'RE STUFF IS AWESOME!!!!!! I think I'll buy this :meow: it's super cool and I like the colors. If you're still making these for sale, I'd be willing to buy a pair. Just name the price, and depending on the price I will buy a pair. I could ask Mungo to give you the money that I give her to pay for a pair of these, if that's okay with you. I doubt I'd randomly run into you on the street and give you the money soooo yeah ;)

Thank you! I actually got it down to 3-5 hours, once the scales decided to cooperate =D (The first piece was much longer...)

Rune rune rune as fast as you can!

Well... probably :XD:. I made Eiwaz and Teiwaz as a set, so both bracelets, rings, and backings were done together. It was 1-2 hours for one scale piece, and I reckon 1 hour for a ring (finicky little rings, them...) and 2 hours for a bracelet (longer for preparing an inlay like that).

Now, the first scale handflower was a prototype for this project, and that sat on my worktable for a good 3-4 months :XD:...
