TARRY thou yet, late lingerer in the twilight’s glory:
Gay are the hills with song: earth’s faery children leave
More dim abodes to roam the primrose-hearted eve,
Opening their glimmering lips to breathe some wondrous story.
Hush, not a whisper! Let your heart alone go dreaming.
Dream unto dream may pass: deep in the heart alone
Murmurs the Mighty One his solemn undertone.
Canst thou not see adown the silver cloudland streaming
Rivers of faery light, dewdrop on dewdrop falling,
Star-fire of silver flames, lighting the dark beneath?
And what enraptured hosts burn on the dusky heath!
Come thou away with them for Heaven to Earth is calling.
These are Earth’s voice—her answer—spirits thronging.
Come to the Land of Youth: the trees grown heavy there
Drop on the purple wave the starry fruit they bear.
Drink: the immortal waters quench the spirit’s longing.
Art thou not now, bright one, all sorrow past, in elation,
Made young with joy, grown brother-hearted with the vast,
Whither thy spirit wending flits the dim stars past
Unto the Light of Lights in burning adoration.
- A Call of the Sidhe, by George William Russell
I am so pleased to present to the newest incarnation in my Faery Wing line- ultra iridescent wings adorned with Swarovski crystal.
In Irish mythology, the Aes Sídhe, also called the Aos Sí ("People of the Mounds"), are noble fae. They are the legacy of the Tuatha De Danaan, and they dwell in the Sidhe. In Scottish tales, they were referred to as the Daoine Sìth, which translates to "people of peace."
These wings are transparent but full of color, shifting between all the shades of the northern lights- you will see rosy pinks, golden coppers, reddish purples, celadon green, and hints of bright blue, ever changing.
I have photographed the wings in both natural light and light from my light box to give you a sense of their iridescence- and yet I can still say they are more beautiful in person!
I have hand-formed and hammered these delicate wings from golden brass wires, then encased them in a durable layer of resin. This resin is non-toxic, completely waterproof, and will not yellow with time.
These earrings measure 2 3/4” from the tops of their brass earwires.
