Crystal Clay & Game of Thrones - Part 2, House Lannister
Halfway through Season 3 of HBO's Game of Thrones already! Where does the time go? I must say, I'm really happy with HBO's decision to split book 3 into two seasons. As much as I enjoyed Season 2, I found it very rushed and think that Season 3 is already benefiting from improved pace.
As promised, I've completed a jewellery set for House Lannister. This is just for me to wear of course, I don't like lawsuits and I don't make money off of franchises I have no license for. :)
Everyone loves to hate a Lannister. Although I'm definitely backing Tyrion as a survivor by the end of the series. Everyone loves to love Tyrion.
Here's the necklace:
I made the necklace large and bold, using deep red Crystal Clay and a mix of Swarovski and Czech Preciosa crystals. I dusted the clay with gold mica powder because House Lannister is the richest house in Westeros. I thought about going with a bright gold metal, but I didn't want it to look gaudy.
And here's the bracelet:
The bracelet is my favourite out of the set, mainly because it's size allowed me to add in more detail. I stamped in scrollwork with gold ink and dusted the clay even more liberally with gold mica powder.
My favourite touch is the chain that I added along the sides. Every House is indebted to House Lannister in some way, monetarily and for other reasons. Ah, symbolism.
So what House shall I do next? I was going to do House Tully, but alas, I used up the last of my deep red crystal clay on House Lannister. Figures, House Lannister tends to take all.
I guess I'll have to 'make do' with the Tyrells. I enjoy them, perhaps even more so on the show than in the book, if only because Margaery is a badass and her grandmother even more so. The Lannisters better watch out! I won't say any more because I don't want to spoil the books for anyone.
Tune in again next week for my Tyrell-inspired jewellery!
