I've been working on Holly, she's the faerie of the holly plant. I thought she would be really cute for Christmas. There is a lot of interesting lore about the holly plant, and it has healing properties too! I will be writing more about that when she is all finished. ^_^ For now, I just want to share some pictures of her:

Spinella is faerie of the gemstone spinel. Her name is actually Latin and means "little thorn". Spinel was named after this, because it grows in very sharp octahedral crystals. Throughout history, spinel has been mistaken for many other gems, most notably rubies, so it doesn't have much lore of its own. It comes in just about every color. Spinella represents black, red , yellow and blue spinel. Spinel is said have a calming energy, and is thought to encourage renewal and healing. Different colors of spinel are said to have different healing properties. It is a non-traditional zodiac stone for Gemini.
Spinella is about 9.25 inches tall. She is made of Japanese glass seed beads, Swarovski pearls, and organic cotton thread & fiber fill. Her dress is accented with natural black spinel beads. She is ball jointed, and has 13 points of articulation.
And here she is!
