"A" for ainu estel

when my friend mellie told me that she can't wait to see what i'll come up with after i watch legion, i told her ... i dun think i would be inspired to create with a genre like legion. i'll probably drool over paul bettany and dream of him every night for 2 weeks ... but create? i think not ...

well, it turns out i have to eat my shoe(s). i couldn't stop myself from thinking of the archangel michael when i was creating over the weekend. and this is what turned out.

elven inspired jewelry
and so it seems the "messenger of hope" did inspire me ... ladies and gentlemen ...
ainu estel

elven inspired jewelry
"ainu" is quenya elven and translates to "messenger" or "angel"
"estel" is also elven, meaning "hope" ... aragorn himself was named "estel" by elrond when he first came to rivendell as a child.

i do love this last image very much because it somehow caught the right lighting. and it looks as if ainu estel is glowing in an aura of angelic light!

so there you are mellie ... this is what came out of legion :)

happy pimping! :)
