Kolfinna started playing in 2006 when she attended at Estrella War. She was invited out to the War by her friend, Cassandra la Schrevein. For a long time she only participated at Estrella War, but she did teach some bead stringing classes. Kolfinna started to get more involved with the SCA when she attended her first Battlemoor, which was also the first Battlemoor ever in about 2010. That was when a friend took her under her wing and started to help by volunteering, including being the Events Coordinator at Estrella. Kolfinna played for several years in Twin Moons, but now lives in Sun Dragon and is part of the Horny Horses Household.

Kolifinna is well-known within the kingdom for her jewelry making, but also enjoys sewing, painting scrolls, knitting, thrown weapons, and drumming. She also does metal working, primarily for jewelry. Kolfinna likes to give back to her barony through largess and service as well.

What's in a Name

Previously known as Rose the Jeweler, Kolfinna changed her name about 2016. Her original name was rejected and she ended up going with Rose the Jeweler, because people had a different assumption about her jewelry making than primarily beading. Kolfinna (pronounced koal-FEE-na) because she wanted to have a Norse name. Her last name is "the Quiet" because she is relatively shy and soft spoken.

Persona

Kolfina wanted to have a Viking persona because it was intriguing. However, she will also just wear more general garb depending on her mood.

Heraldry Story

Kolfinna's original heraldry was 3 trees, with a green bordure with the ermine in the background. She picked it because she liked trees, however, she ended up changing it to a rose with a dog because the rose was reflective of her name and the dog was in memorandum of her dog Pepe and purple and green were her favorite colors.
