Arwen Butterfly Ficcares: Riding Brooch and Coronation Crown




I've been so eager to show you our latest Lord of the Rings inspired Ficcares! Previously we had our Lothlorien Leaf, Sang of Leaves, and Evenstar Ficcares:



















Joining them are two new clips, each inspired by Arwen Undómiel. Arwen Undómiel is a character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. She appears in his best-known novel, The Lord of the Rings, usually published in three volumes. Arwen is one of the Half-elven who lived during the Third Age.

In Lord of the Rings, the Fellowship of the Ring, when Arwen defeats the Ringwraiths after crossing the river, the words she speaks in that scene translate into English thus: “Waters of the Misty Mountains, hear the word of power, rush, waters of Bruinen (Loudwater), against the Ringwraiths!” (Nîn o Chithaeglir lasto beth daer; rimmo nín Bruinen dan in Ulaer!)

This butterfly brooch clasped her riding cloak shut, and now adorns a hair clip fitting for an elven princess.

The Ficcare is a brand new size Large (5 inches from tip to tip). A silver Elvish knotwork butterfly is riveted and wired with sterling silver wire to the clip. Silver leaf accents grace the attachment points, and are cased in Ice Resin making them smooth and seamless so as not to snag hair.




Arwen's Coronation Butterfly Crown Ficcare Hair Clip Large $155









Arwen Undómiel shall not diminish her life's grace for less cause. She shall not be the bride of any Man less than the King of both Gondor and Arnor. - Elrond to Aragorn - J.R.R. Tolkien 

Arwen, known also to her people as Evenstar because of her unparalleled beauty, is destined to leave Middle-earth and sail to the Undying Lands of the West. While this fate looms before her, she falls in love with Aragorn, a mortal man, and is then faced with the heart-wrenching choice to leave Middle-earth with her people or forgo her immortality for the man she loves. She chooses love, and wears a stunning butterfly crown when she takes Aragorn's side in the Return of the King.

This customized Ficcare is wrought blends her Riding Brooch with the green and silver drapes of her Butterfly Coronation Crown.

The Ficcare is a brand new size Large (5 inches from tip to tip). A silver Elvish knotwork butterfly is riveted and wired with sterling silver wire to the clip. The green of the butterfly is hand-painted enamel, sealed with shimmering Ice Resin. Silver leaf accents grace the attachment points, and are cased in Ice Resin making them smooth and seamless so as not to snag hair.

A removable drape hooks onto the edges of the butterfly, with three lengths of silver chain draping to an elvish silver metal filigree in the center. Two sea green glass droplets and one olivine green glass droplet add flashing bits of color to the drape.

I hope you love our new designs as much as I do!  There's only a few in the shop, but a custom order, on any size Ficcare, is always an option.
