The bracelet as pictured is 17cm long, but has been designed so that the clasp will fit into any of rings that attach the charms.

The chain and rings are silver-plated and the charms are Tibetan silver.

Tibetan silver is used primarily in jewellery components, and is similar to pewter. It is an alloy of copper and tin, with a small percentage of pure silver. Its appearance is that of aged silver, but it can be polished to provide highlights on complex castings.

Fairies in Folklore

Fairy comes from the Old French word faerie.

Today, when we think of fairies, we often visualise them as tiny, supernatural beings with wings and glowing with uncommon light in today’s children fairy tales. And they also possessed some sorts of strange magical powers, like Tinklebell in the story of Peter Pan or the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella. The modern fairies, have their roots way back in history.

So fairies, have been around a lot longer than everyone expects. Perhaps the earliest form of faeries can be found loosely in the mythical beings in Greek mythology, such as the nymphs, satyrs and sileni. The household or guardian spirits that can be found in Roman religion and mythology, such as the penates, lares and genii are also the forerunners of our modern fairies.

The Norse versions of the fairies are the wide variety of elves and the dísir that exist in the Teutonic traditions. The Valkyries could also be classified as fairies.

It was during the time of Queen Elizabeth I of England, where William Shakespeare (1564-1616) had popularised fairies in English folklore, in his play Midsummer Night’s Dream, with the characters Oberon, Titania and Puck. Earlier than Shakespeare, Chaucer (1342-1400) mentioned that the land of Britain was filled with fairies before the time of King Arthur.

In the Arthurian legends, the divine or fairy figures also appeared in abundance. Morgan, Arthur’s half-sister, seemed to be great sorceress and healer, was often called Morgan le Fay; her nickname Fay, which means “Fairy”. And then there is this Lady of the Lake. Arthur’s wife, Guinevere, or Gwenhwyfar in the Welsh tradition, also appeared to be a fairy. Many knights were either born from fairies or they took female fairies as their lovers. Even Merlin was only part mortal.
