What better way to start this fantasy series than with a piece inspired by one of the most beloved stories ever, The Hobbit.

The Hobbit holds a special place in so many hearts, including mine, as a story of friendship, loyalty and adventure. A story of a mild mannered Hobbit who goes on an unexpected adventure and becomes a hero and true friend to 13 dwarves and one wizard.

I chose to depict the beginning of this book because I feel that the main moral of this story is about taking that big leap and going after the adventures that come along, even when you don't feel quite ready. Who knows what could happen? You could set off a chain of events that leads to the downfall of a great evil, or maybe just lead yourself to a happier and more fulfilled life. You never know.

Having an object with you that reminds you to take those leaps when they are presented can be so powerful. Giving you the confidence to go for it.

For this reason I chose the affirmation;

"I am brave enough to follow all the adventures that find me".

I wanted this piece to feel like you are carrying around a little part of the Shire. That you have with you that moment when Bilbo decided he would take that first step and go after what excited him. 

The multiple layers of enamel create a 3D effect and give the elusion of space that you can really feel. Did you notice the tiny Smaug in the sky?

 ---

The enamel technique I use creates a stained glass effect and it therefore gets even more beautiful when you hold it up to the light.

Each of the large fantasy affirmation tokens is hand cut from 3 sheets of sterling silver and hand enameled using vitreous enamels and the plique-à-jour technique. For more on vitreous enamels please see the FAQ's page.
Each token measures approximately 24mm in diameter and is approximately 3mm thick.
