Penda of Glyndmere, Award of the Orion

Silent hides to him do speak
Iron glows beneath his gaze
Trees bend before his will

We Nigel Rex and Adrielle Regina
Have noted the endeavours
Of Lord Penda of Glyndmere
In leather working, blacksmithing
And armouring.

For the skill he brings to this Kingdom
We do bestow upon him
The Award of the Orion

Done this 14th day of November
Anno Societatis 44
At the Ealdormere Fall Fair
In Our canton of Bryniau Tywynnog.

Wording, calligraphy and illumination by THL Asa Gormsdottir
Motif based on 7th century Irish metalwork (Hunterston and Tara annular brooches and Ardagh chalice)

Calligraphy hand based on the Lindisfarne Gospels (8th century)
