Lachie and I were mutually poking the Fire Mountain Beads site when Lachie ran across the turquoise 2XAB crystals and noted they had the right kind of sheen for Dark Repulser. From there it was a matter of poking through my bead stash to find 2 kinds of white, very pale aqua, and pale blue, to blend to the translucent blue bugles.
Elucidator was trickier. After all, black and near-black; and figuring out what crystals might fit took a while. I finally settled on heliotrope, which has a blue-purple flash to it. Doesn’t show up as well in this photo as in sunlight, darn.
As a side note, I find holding a camera steady to focus one of the trickiest parts of crafting. Annoying, that.
(And if anyone’s interested… eBay.)
