A Game of Thrones

Well, it's finally ended. After 8 series, countless battles, deaths and political wranglings galore. Much anticipated, much discussed. A Game of Thrones - inspiring so much debate, it even has a TV programme (Thronecast) dedicated to dissecting every detail of plot and character.

Up to 8 weeks ago, I hadn't watched a single episode, falling into the 'what's all the fuss about, silly dragons etc' camp. Then my friend Lucy Haslam finally persuaded me, after two years of pestering, to base our latest jewellery show around it. So I thought I'd just watch a couple of episodes, get the feel of it, the type of jewellery I could conjure up from the themes, costumes etc.

In 8 weeks him indoors and I binge watched the whole 7 previous series to get up to date for the new, and final one. And the ideas are flowing. 

This pair of earrings are one of the first I completed. Helen Backhouse had been working on some new polymer pieces using moulds from teasel heads in her garden - in my deluded state they looked to me like dragon wings, so I sourced some black brass dragon claws; the black brass crescent moons curve nicely around the top of the 'wings' and Lucy's black copper bobble earwires fit perfectly.

 This pair is for Viserion, the middle dragon. And of course, there are three, all differently coloured… let's see what transpires! Our show is in  The Very Nice Group over the Bank holiday weekend 31st May to 2nd June. It's a must for all you GoT fans!

Hop to see you there.
