Beware the power of my Sonic Seam Ripper!

I've just completed the OTHPT3 Swap (One Tiny Harry Potter Thing 3 Swap), and had a wonderful time.  I loved the chance to think outside the box, so to speak, by thinking INSIDE the 4"x4"x4" size limit.  Since my lovely partner chughes225 had a Sorcerer's Stone pendant on her Pinterest, I decided to let that be my inspiration, but take it to the next level.  So I've created for her the Sorcerer's Stone, AND the magical obstacles created by the Hogwarts faculty to protect the stone.

Here's the outside of the box that I sent to chughes225...  

As well as detail shots of the runes on the side of the box, and how the items were packaged.  The runes on the side of the box spell out 3 messages: "Where your treasure is, your heart will be also", "The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death" and "Jennie & Cristen 2012"


The enclosed letter from Dumbledore explained that Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters believe the stone to have been destroyed, and asks Cristen, as a loyal member of the Order of the Phoenix and a very brave Gryffindor, to protect the stone. He even used a Reducio! spell to miniaturize the original obstacles and enchantments used protect the Sorcerer's Stone in the novel.  And they were packaged to literally surround the stone pendant.  


The Sorcerer's Stone Pendant


The stone on this is huge.  39mm x 24mm or 1 5/8" x 1"


And now for the bracelet...


The charms comprise all of the obstacles and spells that appear in the novel.  They include:

Lion Shield for Neville, who attempts to stop the trio from sneaking out
Fluffy the three headed dog
The Trap Door that Fluffy guarded


Devils Snare plant vines
Winged Key


Chess Knight for the Wizard's Chess game Ron won
Bat for the Mountain Troll
The Mirror of Erised
And sprinkled throughout, 7 potion bottles made from beads, for Snape's logic puzzle


The beads are comprised mainly of natural stone to represent the stones Hogwarts & its dungeons are built of. Finally, the clasp is a lock and key.

And here are some closeups of the potion bottles made from beads:

Enjoy!

I will do personal swaps. Cheesy
I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.

Oh dear god this is perfect!  I'd kill for that bracelet alone, but the work you did in the box is amazing too.  Love, love love your work.
