When I was little, I was totally in to fairies and all kinds of make-believe, magical woodland creatures. I'd go off by myself, out into the woods or fields looking for elves, or trolls or horts. I was completely in a world of my own.
While some people argue that I still am, I think that I'm much more practical nowdays. (well, a little more practical, anyway.) But, when these beads came out of the kiln, I swear the first thing that came to my mind was, "Fairy wings!"
Something about the color, or the way the light dances across them or the way they shimmer just looked like gossamer wings to me. I didn't name them Fairy Wings because, well, that just seemed a little creepy. Like, as if they were made out of fairy wings. Eeewwwwww!
Anyway, they're awfully pretty. They are, of course, made out of Aurae. I'm starting to feel like the DH spokesperson or something, I swear.
