...'then she (Galadriel) 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 to you, Elessar , the Elfstone of the house of Elendil !' 

As I came across this paragraph when I was re-reading The Lord of the Rings, my imagination flashed. I wanted to make a pendant like the one described. So, may I present you my Estel pendant!

I also made a hairpin to go with it. (Want to learn how to make a beaded hairpin? Check out my guest post at The Cupcake Dictionary!)
 When Aragorn from The Lord of the Rings was younger his linage was hidden and he was called Estel. Estel means hope in Tolkien's Elvish.
