TIL that the Avengers movies turned Laufey into a dude and I just
‘Raven Amongst the Stars’.
This was my birthday present to myself, this year. I can never have enough ravens, and going through my collection this summer I realized I didn’t really have anything that’s this sort of black-blue-iridescent anymore. It’s sparkly and shiny in a subtle way.
This set is made of 4mm blue goldstone, and some neat little Miyuki long drop beads in ‘blue iris’. The clusters came out pretty much as I imagined them, so I’m happy. There is a matching anklet and bracelet, which isn’t pictured here, but is exactly the same as the necklace, without silver or charms.
OK, here’s a theory.
You know how there’s the popular idea that Hlin is another name for Frigg because in Voluspa it speaks of “Hlin’s second sorrow” when Odin dies? I was thinking, maybe it’s Hlin’s sorrow because as a defender of things Frigg holds dear, She couldn’t protect Him - as She couldn’t protect Baldr.
