I have been organizing the Decked Out for Deathly Hallows Part II swap.  My lovely partner amor_fati requested a piece of jewlery that would serve as a memorial to all the characters who died throughout the series.  I thought that if I was making a memorial to them, that I'd prefer it to be serious, but not sad, much like Rowling's books.  So I went with black, silver, white and clear glass beads, with tiny touches of red, yellow, blue and green Swarovski crystal for each of the Houses, since all of them lost members in the Battle of Hogwarts.  I also tried to have the charms commemorate the best and happiest parts of each of the characters.



The charms include: a full moon for Lupin, wolf for Tonks' patronus, the Hallows symbol, owl for Hedwig, vial of Snape's memories, Hogwarts castle, wizard for Dumbledore (how Harry always saw him, venerable and old in magical robes), courageous token for the trio's journey, socks for Dobby, cemetery gates for  Godric's Hollow, glass eye for Mad Eye Moody, stag for James and a doe for Lilly, Claddagh (symbol of Love, Loyalty & Friendship) for favorite Hufflepuff Cederic, motorcycle for Sirius, and a mischief managed charm for Fred.









And I hope that any of you going to the midnight release this week enjoy the show!
