Fairies - as promised

Here's a surprise! For a change, I am doing what I promised.

Yesterday, for the first time in a long while, I sat down at the torch and decided to create some new fairies. They seem to keep flying away, which is a good thing, but I do love them and love having them around.

The first fairy is a combination of purples. She has some silver inside which sparkles through the purple layers. Somehow I grabbed an orange stringer (by mistake) to start her hair and it turned out just beautifully. The orange hilights add a little oomph to her coloring!

It is unusual to see them alone - not made into a necklace - because they just seem to inspired me and I can't help but put them together with some gorgeous beads. I guess it's because fairies have such an affinity for sparkly things!

Second is the blue fairy... I just love doing these because I use the Galaxy glass I got a year or so ago to give the blue fairies a dreamy look. And, before you ask, no, she is not topless.. she has a gossamer wrap about her (ample) bosom.

I tend to hoard this glass because I've never seen it available since that first time. I tried buying, from another supplier, a glass called "Iceberg" that is very similar, but has yellowish tinges to it, rather than the pure icy, creamy blue of the Galaxy.

Anyhow, the blue just seems "right" for fairies... too much Pinnochio, I guess!

Having seen these two in person, the pictures just don't do them justice. Your skills with the camera are not in question here... just that those photos don't capture the ethereal quality they have. Your best yet!
