I made three versions of the Elessar for B2MEM and Dreamflower kindly invited me to post them here. :-)

I was working from this prompt: "My heart will be glad, even in the winter." (Fellowship of the Ring, "Lothlórien")
Winter brings with it the darkest time of the year but also a return to light. Write or create art about a moment in a character's life when she or he began to perceive hope in the midst of darkness.

And was further inspired by this quote from the same chapter:

'Yet maybe this will lighten your heart,' said Galadriel; 'for it was left in my care to be given to you, should you pass through this land.' Then she lifted from her lap a great stone of a clear green, set in a silver brooch that was wrought in the likeness of an eagle with outspread wings; and as she held it up the gem flashed like the sun shining through the leaves of spring. 'This stone I gave to Celebrían my daughter, and she to hers; and now it comes to you as a token of hope. In this hour take the name that was foretold for you, Elessar, the Elfstone of the house of Elendil!

The idea of the Elessar seemed perfectly related to the prompt--the idea of glad heart and a return to hope/light.

So, I decided to remake that jewel.
