PostSubject: First Amulet of Crom prototype   Tue 13 Jan - 0:25

A few months ago I decided that Crom Worshippers should have Amulets too (The snake worshippers have loads) so I started thinking up designs.

This is the first, loosely inspired by the Crossguard on the Father's Sword. I'll be making more soon and refining my sculpting skills as I go.

This piece is clay cast true Bronze (90% copper, 10% Tin) mounted on a hand forged steel backplate. The steel has been Antique browned, it is attached by threaded brass pins in the back.
Any ideas on further designs/materials/improvements are welcome!

Doesn't Conan wield the "Wheel of Pain" Amulet in the movie? I think it symbolizes the essence of Crom pretty well. Conan
You must have thought of the Father's Sword while making this one. Btw I like the amulet you made out of Bone (Thors Hammer) a lot! And to me it suits more to the world of "conan" or the "hyberian" age. It is sold, unfortunately, isn't it?

The wheel of pain may well be a Vanir symbol in the movie... I like to think Conan wore it to remind him he was the lone survivor.
Yes it did sell, i'll make another when I find a sheep's tail bone again.

Do that because I was just about to buy it when I saw it was gone Wink I am from Germany btw and don't use paypal..
But I really like your work. Amulets, rings everything which can be worn everyday would be very nice, maybe even torques (celtic)
Thx in advance,
Rob

Nice work mate,very rustic which i like. For me i'd prefer to see it have more the antlers of the father's sword but as a first it's great. I love your forged works.

Here is the MK2 Crom Amulet with Antlers
The skull is pure copper, mounted on a hand forged piece of brass, with forged steel antlers.
