Greetings.  I have yet another client with one or two
questions that I'm not sure how to answer.
Any help or comments would be appreciated.

Does anyone know of any documentation for Bluerose?
If not, since obviously someone somewhere had some
kind of documentation for "Bluerose," would the next
step be to get ahold of the appropriate kingdom's
herald and ask them if they know what documentation
was used for that byname?

Does anyone know of any heraldic artists in the
Bryn-Gwlad area who is willing to do devices for
applicants (not just this one but others as well -
there's a reason my device is "per chevron argent and
Or a chevron sable:) )

Thank you, and apologizing in advance for any more
headaches this might cause:)
