Shiny Things by Orin Drake | Shiny Things Gallery | Other Shiny Things | Carry Us Home

Some charms are painstakingly created over years, magic and materials carefully selected, crafted, moved into place so very delicately.  Others are made quickly and with desperation from nearby materials for a single-minded hope and purpose.  It is the opinion of some mages that both types of charms can be equally effective.

As happens so often, I was just going through materials and staring at a few of them and then... er, this.  Plus a little story in my head.

A few days previous, I had been playing with polymer clay and the "stone" effects I might be able to get, and then "antiqued" bronze wire, pressed metal wing charms and that copper diamond came in to the picture.  Things happened.  For all the simplicity, I really enjoy how it came out.
