Avad am Emyn -- Mirkwood Elk Pendant by Starlit-Sorceress Avad am Emyn -- Mirkwood Elk Pendant by Starlit-Sorceress
Avad am Emyn: Reluctance Upon the Hills

There is no Sindarin word for elk, so I wrote a title inspired by the scene where Thranduil takes his army back to Mirkwood.
(All the words are in Sindarin because Thranduil is Sindarin.)

+Watch me to see my new designs as they come out [link]

Enameled copper wire, glass chip beads, acrylic leaf, and Canadian coin. 3 1/2 inches long.

...I would have settled for the elvish word for moose too. Anyone else think it's hilarious to call Thranduil's elk a moose?

I learned some interesting facts about Canadian money while researching for this description. Their paper money is a note. They don't have quarters, dimes, or pennies--they have 25-cent pieces, 10-cent pieces, and cents. The animal on the 25-cent piece is actually a caribou (or reindeer.)

...Now I'm imagining Thranduil soaring above Middle Earth on Christmas Eve on a flying reindeer!

(This definitely belongs on Tumblr, so I posted it there! Reblog here: [link] )

Agreed! I have a feeling this isn't the last Canadian coin I'm going to wrap.

Yeaaah, as a Canadian, let me just say, we do call them quarters, dimes, and pennies. And we usually just call our paper money by its value, like "a ten" "a twenty"

You're the second Canadian to correct part of a quote in this article: [link]

"We don't have 'quarters' or 'dimes' or 'nickels' in Canada -- those terms are Americanisms. We have '25-cent pieces,' '10-cent pieces' and 'five-cent pieces.' And the 'penny' is a British term: we have the 'cent.'

I guess that shows me not to believe the first thing Google tells me!

Yeah, we definitely just call them quarters, dimes and nickels. :D We also have loonies, toonies and glow-in-the-dark dinosaur money, the last not being in regular circulation. And we just ditched the penny.

Anyway, this piece is beautiful.

*compulsive need to comment about that movie*

It bugged me that we have all of these elves forming an army and marching all the way over there, with their king himself in the lead, just so they could take a peek at what the situation looks like. I understand that the movie really really wanted to show you elves and Thranduil. But guys guys guys... couldn't they have just sent like... a scout?

*flails*

(but Thranduil and the elk are so COOOOOLLLLLL)
