Nordic Artworks/Update

I just realized I have not posted any of my traditional art works. Obviously not steel but still pieces I am proud of. All are available at my shop!

Also a heads up that I am moving and losing my working space for forging so for the next period of my life I will left to painting and more organic crafting with wood or antlers as apposed to iron. considering getting back into engraving horns as a stop gap for my business. Anyway I am also saving up a down payment for a new car!! so please pass along this promo, I know its shameless promotion but I really really need a more reliable fuel efficient car. I personally feel my art is priced quite fairly.

Not much but happy 2015.

New designs inspired by Ancient amulets found near the Baltic Sea. I have this described as representing some lost Baltic Snake Goddess which I found to be quite interesting. These are made to order on my Etsy Page.

Odin’s spear was Forged by the Dwarves and bargained for by the Jotun God Loki as a gift to Odin. In Sigrdrífumál A Valkyrie (Pronounced Val-Kyria) shared lore with Sigurd including that the Runes are carved on Gungnirs tip . It is said that the spear cannot miss it’s mark and  some lore suggests it was hewn from the wood of Yggdrasil itself.

March 2014 Update and some new forgings

So a lot has happened, life death etc… I have moved into a new house and my shop also has moved with me. I am setting it up now and I hope I will start to have time to post more articles. I think a few more culturally based postings will be fun as well.
