Walnut stained vine

No time nor inspiration these times to create any calligraphic work but nevertheless itching to use my nibs and a rest of walnut stain at the bottom of a glass...

So here is the result, a small illuminating based on white vine only colored with walnut stain and my loved filigrees to encase it.
For the whole work, have a look at the gallery.

NEUNEULAND - the model

I did promise to post the model of NEULAND script I reworked to write the poem Des Armes by Léo Ferré.

It is now available in the resources section of the website.

After the cut-out comes the embossing.

I'm not satisfied, runes are not legible enough due to the strips between lignes.
I have two possibilities : 
- rework the cut-out to narrow these strips but, fragile as it is, I may destroy the matrix
- restart from the beginning

I'm going to think about it for a while in case a third possibility arise.

A coming event will require that I wear a tie. I already did a few times and there are plenty of how-to on the web explaining the making of the knot so I'm not too stressed.
Being aware of the existence of the tie clip, I decided to make my own one to avoid potential issues while eating, here is the result.

I chose a short quotation from the Ecclesiastes, written in runic alphabet and engraved on a plate of zinc.
