These gorgeous jewellery designs are enough to convert even non-fans to the celebrated HBO show.
I’m an admitted pop culture junkie, and love to wax on about whatever my current binge-watch is (is anyone else feeling traumatized by this past Sunday’s The Good Wife?). But confession: I’ve never jumped into Game Of Thrones. I often wish I was one of the masses that’s become obsessive about the show (I love becoming obsessive!) but the, erm, beheading in first episode was a little too much for my squeamishness (and I know it was tame compared to, say, a wedding?). I am, however, a huge fan of the Vancouver design team (and former Western Living Designers of the Year) Pyrrha. And I absolutely love their latest project: talismans, created from wax seals, based on the sigils of the powerful houses of Westeros from Game of Thrones: Targaryen, Stark, Baratheon, Tyrell, Lannister and Greyjoy. Created using the same techniques that Pyrrha has developed for their personal wax seals, the GOT series essentially become conversation pieces—right up my alley. Perhaps I’m finally ready to jump into the series.Pyrrha Game of Thrones talismans, $226, available April 4 in Vancouver at Walrus, walrushome.com; in Calgary at Rubaiyat,rubaiyatcalgary.com
