Introduction and some work


Recommended Posts

Hi my name is Evelyn and I have been smithing for about 10 years. Mostly off than on :D. I mainly stick in Migration era art but do go into later eras and into the norse, but rarely past that unless its a commission.

This is a seax with two twisted back bars and a bloom steel body, maple burl with bronze fittings and boar.

I believe the 5th picture is a socketed spear head. But I could be wrong. Great work though!! I love the seax, especially the boar shield on the handle. And the last sword is also amazing, whenever I see inlaid garnets I get a little shiver. Are they real garnets?

Nice work Evelyn, you seem to have varied interests, and do well at all!! What is the image on the blade of the Norse Ax?? I tried to enlarge it but, that distorts it.

Neat pieces , indeed. The table is actually my favorite as well ,very cleanly carved. The enamel work on the one pommel, as well as your tapered fullers are also nicely executed. For mostly doing Migration Era work, you certainly seem to enjoy single hand swords from the medieval period ,too ! :)

 

That last blade , your 'personal' looks familiar. Do you have any ties to Last Days Tribe forge?

Welcome aboard and nice work! What are you using for a monosteel, 5160?

Welcome Evelyn, Awesome stuff.

And I'm with Alan, regardless, of the stones. I would love to see that closer up.

I echo what's been said before, all of the work is really wonderfully executed, but that migration period ring hilt is just something else, really amazing work! Welcome aboard :)

Good work! I really like that little PW seax with the bronze and burl wood hilt.

I am sorry for my lack of skill as they are not garnets. I am still learning these talents. I have my first settings though in the Pommel of my recreation of the bamburgh sword.

 

The later era swords are done by commission and Not by my own will :)

Very clean work, glad to have another inspirational maker! I agree that regardless of the stones, I'd love to see some closer details!

 

That table is stunning! The knotting around the border is so elegant.

 

Thank you for sharing!

Heck, I don't actually care what they are, I've played with a reproduction of the Sutton Hoo sword and ALL the accoutrements that used red plexiglass and you really couldn't tell the difference. I would be most appreciative if you were to share how you make your cells/cloisonnes. I have a blade that would benefit from garnet cloisonné...

Welcome to the BladesmihtsForum Evelyn!
Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
Your work has beautiful lines and proportions and shows a good sense for material and texture.

There is much to like!
:-)

Edit: I was going to ask if the grip on the migration period spatha is carved wood or leather?
