The White Woman from Rosenegg



I came across a blog full of stories from all over the world, collected by Andrew Wright.  Andrew has also written many of the stories himself as well as posting his versions of traditional tales.  One caught my eye, because it featured a woman in distress, a rescuer, a monster with treasure...and an interesting twist.  If you'd like to read Andrew's version of The White Woman from Rosenegg, you'll find it at the link.  Above is the treasure necklace that I made in response to the traditional elements of the story. 

This was made in a similar fashion to a previous treasure necklace that I shared with you.  The instructions for that one, called All the Keys to Emerald City, are found at the link.

Thank you Jean! I find myself using backstories more and more these days. It helps me to focus and make design decisions. Do you use backstories for your work?

La veritat és m'agrada molt aquest collar. Dèu n'hi do, quina quantitat de coses que porta penjades. Però és ben segur que queda molt bé.

Carmen! Gràcies molt per als seus comentaris amables. Sóc feliç que li agradi. És molt pesat, però realment m'agraden tots els encants.

This is so beautiful Cyndi. As was the story. Thank you for sharing your gifts. I love looking at the things that you make.

Thank you Debi :-) I thought the story was such a different twist on the usual fairy tale.
