The Best Gift for a Fantasy Nerd- Eolian Talent Pipes!

Tuesday, 11 February 2014

Today I'm going to share with you something that only fantasy nerds will appreciate. I got this as a gift from my Mum for Christmas and gosh I was chuffed when I opened it. I think it's one of the coolest and most fitting presents she's ever picked for me!

It combines my girlish love of jewellery with my fantasy obsession. I've mentioned before my 2 favorite series are the Stormlight archives by Brandon Sanderson and the Kingkiller series by Patrick Rothfuss. The item related to the latter and is none other than the Eolian pipes earned by talented musicians at the Eolian Bar! How cool is that! I'm sorry if you have no idea what I'm talking about, but please read the series- you can thank me later ;).

She got me both the earrings and necklace, both of which can be found online here. They come with a card explaining the story behind the talent pipes and a statement of authenticity. The jewellery is of high quality, extremely finely detailed and so so pretty! Mine are stirling silver with black antiquing and I wear them all the time. Even if normal people don't know what they are, I know and boy do I get excited when I get to show them off to another person who has read the series :P.

The necklace has a longer chain and hangs halfway down my sternum. I still can't get over how cool these items are. They truly make the most awesome gift for a fantasy lover- and chances are most fantasy freaks would have read the Name of the Wind. 

The only thing that bothers me is that there's no way I would have won these pipes at the Eolian with my tone deaf wailing. But that's ok, the whole reason for the fantasy genre is to escape and pretend right?
