Birthday prezzie

Postby Simon_Diment » Fri Aug 31, 2007 6:28 pm

Thanks to some skullduggery between my fab gf and a certain Toby from Conquest aka Henry Somerset of the Silver Wyvern here is my birthday present :D

It's a copy of the C13th original held in the British Museum ( M&ME AF.2683 ) and contains the same gemstones; rubies and sapphires:

Isn't it a beauty? This is the second commission we've placed with Toby and he is a genius!

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

I definately know Simon.. Not sure about Toby though.. I probably know his face and to talk to, but I have what must be the worst memory for names, ever.

I only remember my own name cos ppl shout it at me all day :P
