is a figure of medieval chivalric romance literature. "Errant," meaning wandering or roving, indicating how the knight-errant would typically wander the land in search of adventures. NightBlooming has a quest for those that would dare to take it. Though a challenge, the reward is great!

As NightBlooming's signature style is well known to our customers, we're offering up this ghostly leaf set of earrings, a necklace and a hair stick as a reward for the one who can unravel this riddle! The answer lies within one of my sold items, so the better you know NightBlooming’s work, the easier this may be.

(¸.•´ (¸Quest for the Autumn Veil

Samhain begins the "dark half of the year", "the small sun" or "An Ghrian Mór". At Samhain, the veil between this world and the next is at its thinnest and this set captures the thinning of the Autumn Veil with a set of ghostly leaves.

The Stick: Built upon stainless steel which is perfect for use in wet or oiled hair, this stick is topped with silver pewter, a twisted silver vase, and a shimmering metal leaf. It has a usable length of 5 inches and an overall length of 6.75 inches.

The Necklace: Strung on a length of twisted silver chain that closes with a leafy toggle clasp, from the center hangs a large, but light leaf. The current length is 14 inches, but it will be lengthened to whatever you desire.

The Earrings: Silver ivy leaves hang from delicate ear wires.

We'll do another quest for the Winter Solstice! So even if you don't win please try again then :)

Your Hint:
In Celtic polytheism, Belisama was a goddess worshipped in Gaul and Britain. She was connected with lakes and rivers, fire, crafts and light. She has been claimed to be the consort of Belenus, with whom she shared certain attributes. Her name has been interpreted to mean "summer bright".

The Question:
Praytell, what color are the metal accents on this stick?


++Free shipping is via First Class USPS. If you would like a different shipping method or insurance, a small charge will apply.

Though the listing is for $0.20 as that is the lowest amount that Etsy will allow an item to be listed for, these fees will be covered by NightBlooming for the winner.
