Finally. I'm releasing the first of many Njordwood Alchemy™ projects for you to collect.
First, I want to explain a bit- I focus on whatever my mind's workbench has strewn across it's expanse. Njordwood Alchemy was initially just a plan for me to stylize my packaging for my bronzework. Little did I know I'd start pushing my limits and well, it wasn't long before people I shared my notes with prompted me to offer these additional creations. That's where the crazy comes in. I'm picky. I don't create with the desire for outside approval, it's all me and satisfying my need to make something I would want. The first of everything ends up of course, as my trophy in hopes future generations can look back on what Fen left for them to hopefully, admire. The loves in my life are my driving force, my energy, my direction. Things like this are my expression of that and I'm glad I can share them with you.
"Celtic Tree of Life" - $45*
The Tree of Life is found in many world cultures. My personal beliefs and flavor tends to of course, come from Northern European/Germanic direction. There is a great deal of reference material out there if you just look. Regardless, it's life, growth, and a strong foundation for your own persistence.
Each of these takes about 20 hours to craft. It's a labor of love and I'm proud to present it to you.
This coffer measures roughly 2 1/2" X 2 1/2" X 2 1/2". Other sizes can easily be made by request. I'll be doing a few more sizes but for me, as it is its perfect. After experimentation I chose a stain to give it a somewhat aged, yet rich look. I think you'll be pleased. It is wood. It is eco friendly. It's Njordwood Alchemy™. For now I'm taking orders via PM here, and until the store (which I already have here, I just have to look it over and make sure I'm happy with it's function) is up, via my Paypal, check, money order, cash, or gold bouillon. (laughs) You can also contact me on Facebook PM as well, but you'll want to register here on Historic Origins anyways- it's the best way to keep up to date with what I'm doing and since I handle the site exclusively, you know you're getting all me baby.
* $45 (Shipped anywhere in the continental US) - Overseas orders, we will have to discuss because shipping can vary.
Heres a color comparison to natural wood and the finish I chose. Enjoy. Please, leave feedback below or other means and let me know what you think.
