Viking pennanular brooch by Aranglinn Viking pennanular brooch by Aranglinn
finished at last! (well... I started it like... on tuesday, it wasn't a loong wait xD)

well again, this is a viking bossed pennanular brooch, they were popular from like... 9th to 11th century in scandinavia and originated from the viking settlement's in ireland

I based this one on many actual hiberno-norse brooches from ireland but the filigree and granulation is more common in scandinavia itself (still... my filigree sucks and my granulation is not a lot better xD)


but I really liked how this one came out
I messed up several times there, but I still think it's my best piece so far (and by far xD)

emm
just that xD

ahh, yeah
100% handmade in silver
took me about 10 hours of work (distributed in 2 days)

"still... my filigree sucks and my granulation is not a lot better xD" tell me: why do you write such foolish things? in your picture you look ok...I guess... you don't look that silly... fortunately you said something good at the end otherwise I am very cross with you!

dAmn right! you should be happy! this turned out good..... look how many groups it's featured in... are you an idiot?... I don't think so! so please, admit you can craft well, that doesn't mean you are big-headed... remember that in the 8th, 9th, 11th centuries, people were making odd little "errors" and shrugged it off.. it happens

entonces hombre, que te doy algo si entendido algo tan idiota otra vez... m'entiendas? ....que hombre esta!

y ahora me voy te dar un fav por este cosa tan magnifico...
(no te precupas, hombre, estoy asi solamente una vez cada siete anos o mas... :) ), hasta la proxima, y suerte con tu trabajo y vida. ciao, Peter.

Anonadada por tu trabajo...
En realidad llegué aquí siguiendo los tutoriales de un blog (que por cierto, se agradecen muchísimo...) =) hermoso el broche, y enorme el trabajo de granulado! No puedo creer que solo te hayas demorado 10 horas, pero bueno, la mano con práctica hace maravillas

Como sea, has quedado archivado! ;)

pero claro... hay que definir que es vestimenta cotidiana... xD

yo lo he usado por ejemplo para cerrarme un poleron que tiene el cierre malo
y cosas asi xDD

I loved granulation too, I had never tried ir before, but now... xD I'll use it on everything! xD

yep, I've been using it a lot lately, as I'm now in a trip on northern chile, with temperatures from -15 to 35 celsius... so I need my viking cloak every night xD

Great work. I haven't tried granulation....it looks like it takes a lot of that stuff I didn't come built with in the DNA....what's it called again? Ahhh! Patience....yes, that's it. :P

but... nah
well.. yeah, making the little granules sucks.... but when they're done it's pretty easy to put them in the piece

If making the granules is making little balls - we got taught a super quick way at tech. Where I worked, we made each individual ball on a charcoal block with a little dig out, but where I studied, we were taught the "speed method". xD

Basically to tilt your soldering block at an angle with your quenching bowl at the bottom. You have all your bits of metal on the soldering block, you heat them all together, and when they ball up and change, they roll down into your quenching bowl automatically. ^^ That way, you get them all done, and when they ready, they move themselves out the way into the quenching bowl. :D

Hope this could be of some use. ^^
