Have you ever wondered how Arwen and Celeborn see their way through the forests at night?

Legend says that Elves use magical lanterns that glow without giving heat. Stories have, for centuries, depicted their dancing in the night accompanied by soft lights, akin to those of the heavenly stars, but near at hand. These cool, gentle lights are said to add much to the fairy enchantment, and help create the aura that allows Elves to dance for days and weeks without fatigue, but a danger to mortals who might venture too close and be unable to return to the familiar world due to the power of sorcery.

The lights are said to be akin to the glow produced by fireflies and other insects, soft lights which provide the beauty of a star in the sky, but with no glare or heat.

Ella’s answer to this legendary lighting is her “curling crystal” creation. Available in blue-violet or in fuchsia, the translutcent globe glows with soft colour, and stands atop a curling rod. It is sometimes said that good fantasy reminds you of something you’ve never seen before, because it seems natural, as if it should exist, but unusual enough that you know it doesn’t. Ella’s curling crystals have just that quality, looking as if they were grown organically by Elven magic. They seem natural, yet not of this world.

They also emit fireflies, the other important component of Elven lighting. These particle insects cause no lag, but form a cloud of little yellow-green lights swimming around the crystal, as if drawn to its tranquil light.

The crystals are beautiful in themselves, and have the air both of magic, and also of abstract art. For the non-Elf, a few curling crystals tucked about a garden will lend elegance and serenity, providing a very modern, yet timeless, touch.

Made with the very finest and purest of magic materials, the blue crystals stand atop silver rods and are available singly, while the pink crystals on black rods, are available in groups of three, all different heights.
