DescriptionEntry in 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. The chart is NOT to scale; some sections, such as the Breaking of the Fellowship, are longer than others because everyone was wandering all over the place, whereas other sections which took longer amounts of time are quite short, because everyone was together.
So here is the necklace with labels on it, pointing out characters and events. Not every single event is labelled, but the selection should give a good idea for those who are familiar with the story.
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 (of course, for LOTR!) Plated Steel WD=1.2mm ID=6.35mm (Black Ice), Plated Brass WD=1.2mm ID=3.6mm (Black Ice)
