Artifact Analysis:
In the valley at the base of the High Mountains, there are beautiful yellow and white flowers that grow during the summer. These flowers are plentiful and brilliant in their sun-shaded hue, and it is no wonder that they are considered a staple part of summer.

Besides brightening picnics, these flowers are also a key part of the Grand Festival, held on Midsummer Day. In the morning, women of all ages go into the fields and pick handfuls of flowers, and then plait them into hair-garlands. Then, at noon when the sun is high, they give the garlands to their mothers, to be worn in pride for the rest of the celebrations.

This pair of hairsticks, crafted of yellow and white glass, is made in this tradition. A gift from daughter to mother, they too are garlands for the hair.

Cataloger’s Notes:
Please keep in mind that these sticks are shorter than the sticks I usually post. They are perfect for half-up hairstyles, shorter hair, or simply those occasions when a 6” stick is just too long.

Also, please keep in mind that most stories told here—unless otherwise stated—are my original ideas. They are part of a larger work that I am writing and planning on publishing. As such, I would appreciate that they be treated as just that—my intellectual property. Stories that are completely not of my creation will be designated with an item number of BU (Borrowed Universe). I greatly appreciate your cooperation!
