DescriptionEntry for competition #31 "Storytelling".
When I was considering storytelling, my thoughts turned to the threads of a story, the way that characters arive and depart, interact with each other for a while, go away, come back, and usually all turn up in the same place for the climax.
So I decided to do a character "timeline" necklace for a specific bunch of characters in a particular story - the "Nine Walkers" of The Lord of the Rings. That is: Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Gandalf, Aragorn, Boromir, Legolas and Gimli. I went off to the internets and found a timeline, and made a chart of when people were together and when they weren't, and I based the necklace on that.
From the top, the lines are:
4 in 2 Chain Enamelled Copper WD=1mm, ID=3.97mm (Dark Blue, Blue, Purple, Green, Brown) Anodized Aluminium WD=1mm, ID=3.97mm (Purple, Lavender, Sky Blue) Stainless Steel WD=1mm, ID=3.97mm, Plated Steel WD=1mm, ID=4mm (Silver)
Magemaille: same rings as 4-in-2, plus Plated Steel WD=0.8mm ID=3.18mm (Black Ice)
Onering (what else for LOTR?) Plated Steel WD=1.2mm ID=6.35mm (Black Ice), Plated Brass WD=1.2mm ID=3.6mm (Black Ice)
