I'm so glad you received and liked the items! I have a few other pictures so here are some. Not better light, but, you know. Who needs daylight anyway.
And for scale
Here's..not a better, but a more close up (and blurry) pictures of the ornaments
Thanks to my boyfriend for taking pictures
I forgot to mention, I got the list of hair angreal from here: http://wot.wikia.com/wiki/Cadsuane_Melaidhrin
That origami one is supposed to be the 8-pointed star, but I guess it has 10 points somehow :/ Also, the blue awesome fish I didn't make.
And the OTHER reason I need to upload photos is because I received my package from DeftAnn today!! Wow! I'm so impressed by the quality of these items! I need to take lessons from her in finishing things beautifully and professionally! AND she did it in the middle of moving?! OMG. SO LOTS OF PICTURES AHEAD BEWARE
It is a lovely bag, a set of coasters, and a set of hair pins. I will explain further as we go along....
First, a set of hair pins with charms a la Cadsuane. Lovely in their simplicity! And something I would actually wear! Take THAT saidin wielders
Second, a supremely well made set of coasters featuring different bits of "RANDLAND".
and just because I found the camera's macro lens...
But, as Deftann said in her note to me, there should be a moment of silence for the book she had to cut to make them. Understandable. May the characters find their way even without a map.
And finally a Cairhien bag!
As she says" dark on the outside (with stripes), and a little crazy on the inside." PERFECT CAIRHIEN. Wow, so this bag is so well made. I thought that maybe she got a fabric covered in nice colored ribbons, but no, I think she actually (somehow) attached them all on the fabric PERFECTLY parallel and with no visible stitching! How?! (fusible web? SAIDAR?!) WOW so impressive. Like something you would buy. Plus there are like ten stripes so I would be pretty important in Cairhien. YUP. Ok so amazing stripes, then you OPEN the bag and BAM! AWESOME dragon lining (which coincidentally matches the silver and red stripes on the front) (and HELLO, an enormous dragon! woah). AND there are pockets which I show loaded up below (and you can see the lining):
Ok and may I once again mention how wonderfully these items are made! Superb craftsmanship!
Well, I guess I'll stop gushing because it's almost midnight. Thanks so much DeftAnn! You are AWESOME and so are your items!
