Kolfinna’s Pyxis

Finished scrollOrder of the Pyxis
For Kolfinna Hrafnkelsdottir

The Pyxis is a non-armigerous award given for putting forth great effort at researching, creating and maintaining a period persona and atmosphere. Therefore, I made this scroll to be a pair of temple rings, bearing the badge of the order, that would be period for the recipient.
