By searching the Web for "and forever to entwine us", you can find
several sites that are selling an "Elvish Love Ring" or pedant with this
text, such as <http://ancientmemories.com/am/elfring.htm

Based on the photo of the pedant, it looks like the English text has
been transcribed using the Quenya mode of TengScribe or one the
compatible transcribers: _nd_ is written with ando, _b_ without a
preceding nasal has disappeared and so on. Some random typos seem to
have been introduced at some point, since "to bind" has become "ndoind"
instead of the expected misspelling "toind".

So it seems: in Elfscript message 829. A Sindarin translation appears in
851, with a suggested correction and a good point about the whole thing
in 852. I can't find a tengwar transcription.

Strangely, parts of the text indicate that whoever did the image has an
understanding of the key mapping, it's just that the "extended" grade
has been used for *all* consonants. The beginning could, I guess, be
read as "mini quoma tani milmilva..." in the Quenya mode. Most of it
makes less sense, though.
To Lady Malice: does the text have to be in Quenya? I can't comment on
the Quenya or Sindarin translations, but writing the English text in
tengwar would seem like a simple solution. Anyway, writing the text in
any of these languages using tengwar should not be too difficult. I'm
sure list members can help you when you have decided on the final text
