DwarfWeek - Day five: Dwarven objects

“Dwarves were taught special skills by the Vala Aulë and spent most of their time crafting, smithing and mining in their massive underground cities. The Dwarves were some of the greatest miners ever to exist in Middle-earth. The Dwarves dug immense halls under mountains where they built their cities. Dwarven miners dug for precious minerals such as gold, iron, copper, and silver from all over mountains in Middle-earth, though the Dwarves considered coal mining degrading. In ancient times, the Dwarves found Mithril in the mines of Khazad-dûm. While mining in Erebor beneath the Lonely Mountains, they discovered the Arkenstone at the Heart of the Mountain." 

"They were also capable masons and smiths - Dwarven smithing skills were said to be rivaled only by those of the Elves, and their masonry creations were bested by none. The skill of the Dwarves was unmatched; they crafted objects of great beauty out of diamond, emerald, ruby and sapphire. Everything Dwarven was beautifully crafted and intricate. They crafted many famed weapons, armors, and items of art and beauty, among them Narsil, the sword of Elendil, the Dragon-helm of Dor-lómin and the necklace Nauglamír." 

"Dwarven armies were vast and powerful, and possessed vast legions of soldiers, cavalry and siege weapons, and their soldiers were equipped with powerful weapons, armors and tools for battle. Many different weapons were utilized by their soldiers, such as swords, axes, throwing axes, throwing knives, and warhammers." 

"They had a knack for starting a fire almost anywhere out of almost anything. Although they knew how, Dwarves did not farm or herd often, as they preferred to spend their time underground mining and crafting. They rather traded crafted items with men and elves in exchange for food.”

How To Make The Most Of Your Internship

Here’s how to stay positive at all costs:

1)  Before you accept an internship, talk about your expectations and goals.

2)  Once you’ve taken the job, send your boss an e-mail laying out three to five objectives, and ask for a response.

3)  During your internship, ask for meetings with your boss from time to time to assess your progress.

4)  Network with others in the office, and add them to your list of LinkedIn contacts.

5)  Even if your internship turns sour, maintain an upbeat attitude, so that you can leave with a strong reference from the boss.

6) No matter what, work hard.

Harry Potter Meme -  1/6 spells, magical creatures, objects, and/or potions.

First Love Beguiling Bubbles was a potion used by Romilda Vane, who tried to use it on Harry Potter as she believed him to be The Chosen One, which she found to be a very desirable trait. However, her plan went awry and the potion was mistakenly consumed by Harry’s friend, Ronald Weasley.

Secret Garden - Solange Azagury-Partridge

“A collection of five precious objects designed as jewellery boxes. The box becomes the jewels.

A greenhouse of enamel plique-à-jour with gold structures forming geometric motifs [first two photos]. A small bird on the roof is ready to fly away. The walls taken apart form two identical cuffs for the wrist and the roof becomes a bowl for marshmallows [third photo]. The floor is paved with diamond, opal and obsidian and, when pulled out, its centre becomes a pendant [fifth photo]. This miniature Orangerie has trees, statuary and a bench to sit on and contemplate life. Some shoes have been left behind after a party. An umbrella is left in an elephant foot stand in case it is raining when you leave [fourth photo].This hothouse sits on a lotus leaf made of rose quartz and aventurine.”
