Kingdom- imperfect salvage earrings with glass beads
In the kingdom of Th'heirre it is thought to be an insult to the Gods to make anything of perfect creation, since only the Gods can be perfect. Repeating patterns in textiles contain 'mistakes', pots are deliberately made crooked, jewelry is mis-matched and furniture is not considered worthy of use until it is broken and mended again.
Due to this cult of imperfection, trade merchants have often chosen to travel through this area in the hope of selling their less than perfectly manufactured trinkets to a people who prize mistakes higher than gold. A saying in Th'heirre is 'let no man tell a truer word than 'I am imperfect.'
