Amulet of Talos by CanisPanthera Amulet of Talos by CanisPanthera
Pendant made from carved paperclay, then painted to look like old bronze. Single piece of hemp cord wound around itself, with a hook closure. Fun to have not just a piece of the Skyrim world, but a symbol that represents what the Stormcloaks are fighting for.

The making of the amulet: [link]

I found this a bit late, but I am now a fan of your Skyrim-related works. Which I now silently envy you.
But I've been meaning to ask, how did you do this wound around string? Is there some tutorial on this I can follow?

Thanks, I just bought hemp cord and in any place that needed to be wound, I brought the cord up then back down to about the length I needed for the winding. Then I just wrapped it around itself several times until it looked right from bottom to top, and tied a knot at the top. I did this at each point I needed to wind. Super quick and easy!

You really did a great job here. It may be the lighting or color, but at first I thought you carved it out of wood. I like seeing the variety you gave the necklace portion of each amulet, since in the game it only looks like a thick cord from rope.
