I did my Thesis on Tolkienīs Elves. Once, looking for information I ran into a site with Family emblems of the major Elvish races. Sadly, I only saved Fëanorīs Crest, for I thought that would be the only one Iwould need for my work. Well, it turned out that I didnīt even use that one, but now I am trying to find that site for the rest of the Crests, with no luck. If you have information on where I could find them, I will repay it with a surplus of gratitude and I promise Iīll be your friend... forever!

Naaah, thanks anyway. The one I mean had a more darker look. Donīt get me wrong, the site was interesting. Still, I am looking for the Tolkienīs Elven crests. Go gooogle sounds like a good idea. An even better one was that Iīve tried it already. We can check if you want. At least now I feel "not alone" in my search.
Oh, looking for Elven crests? That sounds interesting!
Azadhel, u say u have Feanor's? As I'm sure u can see from my name, that makes me rather curious... so, what is it like? I'd love to see it, somehow! Elf Winking Smilie Smile Smilie

Of course you're my best friend. My bestestestestest friend. Is that a word? I thought not. bUt you're still my best friend for giving me that site.
I believe that this site will be of assistance:

Sure, Feanor, I have right here. As a matter of fact, looking for them I found a sketch of Feanor turned arround and the crests of his house and some others are drawn there too. I have the images here but have no idea how to send them to you. Perhaps sending private messages, as Tarrant does, but youīll have to show me how. I was trying to send them to Loni before but not even on the profile menu there is a way. The Feanorian crest is a square, but rotated 45 degrees so it rests on one of the corners. It has couple of thick circles, one biger than the other inside. Between circles there are shapes drawn as to represent rays, like sun beams, from the smaller circle to the largest. In the center of the small circle there appears to be a sun kinda. And swirled tounges, as of fire, on the corners between the square and the biggest circle. I hope this makes sense. Anywho, my address is zea@imneverwrong.com if it helps. Also, Arcormacolindóva is right. You can see them on that site. That helps a lot. Thank you. Nonetheless, the site I remember had them all lined up and ready to be enlarged. Donīt get me wrong, this helps a lot.
