Miniature Riven Beetle Inkwell by HylianJean Miniature Riven Beetle Inkwell by HylianJean
A surprise gift came in the mail last year from a very thoughtful Myst friend here on DeviantArt (thank you again!! :hug: ) which included a few lovely little craft supplies. Among them were a few gold-colored, slightly weathered cabochons which reminded us of the shape of Riven's golden beetles.

So here is what I finally got around to making from this kind gift: a miniature version of Gehn's beetle inkwell, part of his writing paraphernalia seen in Riven: The Sequel to Myst. (See a screenshot here: [link] )

I inscribed and inked the lines of the beetle carapace in its back, but I didn't have a good way to drill a hole in it. So, it's not exactly an inkwell, more like Gehn just mounted a beetle on a stand, but I like it just the same. The base is about the size of a dime.

One of these is, of course, reserved for the friend who sent me the gift in the first place. :) The other is for the Make One Share One competition at Myst-Fanclub. (glass plate not included, sorry! ^^; )

Myst and Riven are property of Cyan Worlds and I thank them for their ongoing inspiration of artists like me.
