Absinthe, an anise flavored spirit, green in color and strong in effect, was often called "The Green Fairy." It originated in Switzerland but became popular among the writers and artists in Paris. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Oscar Wilde were among its devotees.
This green fairy is at least as addictive and seductive as the absinthe of old was reputed to be. She will bewitch and beguile all whom she meets.
This pattern requires just 13 colors of beads.
All the amulet bag patterns include an acetate grid to help beaders keep their place. Some of the patterns include a package with five or six beads to be used as the highlights in lips and yes, included so the customer doesn't have to purchase a pack of beads just for two or three. Also included in each package is a pattern for letters and numbers, so beaders can customize the back with initials or date.
