Inspired by the amazing Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen books by Garth Nix, here is a wearable version of the beautiful Paperwing crafts used by Abhorsens, royalty and Clayr alike.
Shaped like slim canoes, with hawk-wings and tails, the Paperwings are built using thousands of sheets of laminated paper and imbued with Charter magic so that they can ride air currents and fly great distances.
The pendant is 50mm x 45.9mm, so it’s quite the statement piece, attached to a delicate, bright, 18” stainless steel chain and is presented on an illustrated backing card that's covered with shiny, metallic keys.
The pendant is made from my illustration of a Paperwing, produced in silver plated metal with blue enamel and white, screen printed detailed patterns on the wings and tail. There is also a clear epoxy resin coating over the pendant to protect it from scratches and give it a smooth, lustrous finish.
