SmokePetal the FireBlush Fairy
Remember sitting by the fire and noticing those little flecks of cinders floating up from the edges of the fire? Those were FireBlush fairies, second cousins to Cinderella and great-granddaughters of fire goddesses. Remember looking at them and wondering where they were going? They were dancing and playing truth-or-dare with their sisters, dares usually being along the lines of "dare ya to float as high as the wind will take ya" and truths revealing things like "your favorite mortal." Remember watching them as they rose and then fell to the sides of the fire? They were traveling farther from home than we realized. You see, FireBlush fairies are born in the outer embers of a circular fire. The "Blush" comes from the glow of the heat upon their cheeks, and it's a telltale sign of their intense craving for heat. The floating and spinning on warm currents from the fire is much like swimming in water is for us. It can be a gentle pastime or a grand adventure. So, next time you sit by a fire, let the twinkle in your eye be a signal to the FireBlush fairies that you love fire as much as they do. . .and don't be surprised when they invite you into their honorary sisterhood, for after all, they noticed the blush on your firewarmed cheeks, too!
Ah, pretty story to imagine, isn't it? I almost convinced myself it could be real :) SmokePetal was a happy accident, and she may or may not have sisters lurking in my torch. I wouldn't want her to know this, but the "accident" part has actually become the key to her personality. That smoky blush on the Gaffer ivory is a bit different from the marbled look I get on my Effetre ivory glass sculptures. It is slightly golden in tone (where you see the darker yellowish color), and while the ivory glass took the smoky look from a reducing flame, it remained very smooth and shiny...a happy surprise!

Thanks for stopping by to visit with AngelinaBeadalina! I'm really just plain ol' Angie or Ang, but the catchy name does suit me in the sense that I'm a motormouth who loves to play with words almost as much as I love to play with glass! You can find me here at BeadArtists.org, in my Etsy shop, or in my daily blog. You can get links to those places at www.angelinabeadalina.com (click on it above). Please pardon the use of my "official" website as a traffic control signal at the moment-- at least, that's what it makes me think of when I look at it. . . lots of directions to other places where there are updates on a daily basis. Tech-stuff would not be one of those things that I love or that comes naturally to me ;) Well, enough rambling for now, come on in, look around. . . have fun exploring my glass experiments and ideas. Peace, Ang
