Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Make a PurchaseEdit

This quest will be added to your journal upon installing the Nordic Jewelry Creation. You will be directed to Riften to purchase an item of Nordic jewelry. You can purchase some from the Pawned Prawn or from Madesi's stall in Riften Grand Plaza. You have the option to purchase a Nordic Amulet, Nordic Circlet, or Nordic Ring in order to progress the quest. Note that they are all relatively pricey given that they're pieces of jewelry. Once you've purchased your desired item, a Certificate of Authenticity will be added to your inventory. Read it to learn that the creator of the jewelry is a craftsman named Hugin Ice-Shaper who can be found on Solstheim.

Stalhrim LapidaryEdit

Travel to Solstheim and you will be directed to a spot west of Raven Rock, in the ash wastes just north of the Earth Stone. There you will find two hostile reavers (a melee fighter and an archer) standing over the body of Hugin. Dispense with them both and loot the melee reaver for three powerful enchanted items: a leveled Nordic Amulet of Health, a leveled Nordic Circlet of Magicka, and a leveled Nordic Ring of Stamina. You can then locate and read Hugin Ice-Shaper's Notebook to learn how to craft Nordic jewelry.

To complete the quest, you will need to craft a piece of Nordic jewelry yourself. Be sure to grab the required components from the satchel next to the body: three samples of stalhrim and three quicksilver ingots. Head back into town and find a forge in order to craft the jewelry of your choice and finish the quest.


  • Even though the quest points you to Riften for purchasing the jewelry, all general goods and jewelry merchants will have it available for sale. Purchasing from any of them will work as well.
