I got some interesting raspberry luster beads, so I thought I’d try making a pair of earrings for that most mayhem-causing of groups in Magi: Reim’s Fanalis Corps.
Believe it or not, those are not white beads setting off the center bead; they’re a very pale pink. White would have contrasted more, and I think badly, with the cranberry luster.
On the one hand, I’m pleased with the result; I got in the Roman-Empire style coloring of the Corps, with a hint of Imperial purple, and bits of gold. On the other… Hmm. It feels a little too… contained, for the Fanalis? Granted, they are supposed to be an organized group, and some of them at least try to be civilized and polite before all hell breaks loose. Still.
Any thoughts? Suggestions? Should I have this more as Myron’s set (she does try to be refined) than representing the Fanalis as a whole?
