OOAK Antique Gold Gryphon Guardian of the Mystic Gateway Brass Hair Fork

In the distant Mists of Time the Elder Gods looking for into the future realized that their time of reign would one day come to a close and that younger gods would come forth and take dominion over the worlds that they had created.
But they did not wish for the deepest mysteries that they had created to fall into the hands of those younger and wilder gods.

The Elder Gods sat in assembly giving much thought to what would be the safest place for the most sacred of all mysteries to be hidden.

It was decided that they would charge the most fearsome of all Gryphons to be in charge of a gateway that they would create to a hidden and protected world. A World where the magic that they had imbued it with when it was new would remain strong and powerful, even as it diminished in the world where the younger gods wrestled power from them.

The Elder Gods knew that if it were a large and powerful looking gate that it would soon be discovered and ravaged by either the young gods, or the humans that began to populate the world with their coming. So the Elder Gods made the gateway to be a small but beautiful amulet. One that only the most powerful of mages would be able to use.

They choose to willingly place themselves in this world, one that they knew that someday a powerful mage would come. One of pure heart and intent that would become at first the guardian of the Gryphon's Gate and later the mage who's ability would be the one to open the gate and allow the Elder Gods to return and bring forth once more the days of peace and tranquility to the world that they had created.

This hair fork has been created with the look of that wonderful amulet. A glorious rich deep antiqued golden gryphon surrounding a rich olivine crystal. Guarding it's treasure and holding it close. It has been created with all of the beauty and mysterious magic of the original that is hidden somewhere for one pure of heart to find and activate.

The vintage style findings recreate the beauty of the creation of the Elder Gods and the vintage crystal that os beautiful blues, reds and violet swirls which are the colors of one of the vortices of the gateway.

The hair fork is 6.5 inches total, and 4 5/8th inches of usable, or 16.5 cm total and 11.8 cm usable.

While each of these hair forks have been created to be sturdy as well as lovely, only grasp them by the tines of the fork and not by the jewels or the vintage findings.

You can also check out my other metal hair forks and, hair forks and hair sticks made of wood as well as my beaded hair accessories in my Etsy shop. I create hair forks with titanium in several different ways. I also have both single stick as well as double stick sets as well as swords and hair forks of both round and flat material. You also might enjoy my brass hair forks and other metal hair forks and other metal work and bead work.

I hope that you enjoy my items as much as I enjoy creating them. Each item is the result of hours of care and time, just for your pleasure.

Blessings to you for stopping by my shop.
