Seeing as the final installment of the Harry Potter series finally opened this past weekend in movie theaters all over the place, in honor of all HP fans (myself included), I've spotted a gryphon (or griffin/griffon) on Etsy! I'm also a fan of whimsical things, colorful objects, and shiny pieces. Robin Senour from Berkeley (also known as sacredlaughter on Etsy) has captured these three attributes into one: her little wearable sculptures.
For those of you unfamiliar with the gryphon, it is a legendary creature with the body of a lion and head and wings of an eagle, almost like a sphinx but with a bird's head instead of a human one. For those of you familiar with Harry Potter, it is the house mascot for Gryffindor, whose students are noted for their courage and chivalry. Robin's bright talismans are suitable for anyone, Harry Potter fan or not. Crafted from clear acrylic and paint, these creatures are fastened on the back with a pin and are meant to remind us to accentuate the positive.
Robin's gryphon pin is a bold, positive statement that can be fastened to a bag or plain sweater to show of its bright hues of blue, red, orange, and sparkly green. Finished with a glaze, this pin will sparkle in the light and is surely something to brighten your day. Robin's passion for her crafts shines through in these pins and helps bring out the passion in others. Give it as a gift to a friend who needs a little cheering up, a little motivation, or just because. Get two and use it as unique symbols of friendship between yourself and another!
Be enamored with Robin's fantastical imagery and be taken into a brightly colored whimsical world with her little trinkets!
