"Sadly, I'm one of the few traditional Saxhleel Jewelers that remains in Tamriel; it's becoming a last art. Only trouble is gathering the materials has become hazardous."

Speak to Madesi about his jewelry. He will ask the Dragonborn to gather some components, because the roads are dangerous due to attacks of the bandits.

After finding one mammoth tusk, one gold ore, and two flawless sapphires, return to Madesi. In return, he offers a random piece of jewelry as a reward.

  • Completing this quest counts as one of the favors needed to earn the title Thane of the Rift.
  • Madesi can be killed by a dragon, or any other character, making the quest impossible to complete.
  • The quest objective to return the mammoth tusk uses the plural form "tusks" despite only needing to collect and return one.
  • Depending on what random piece of jewelry Madesi gives and how well the Dragonborn can barter, the goods that must be given to Madesi could yield more gold if sold to merchants.
