Golden Inspiration


Ever wonder how straw spun into gold might look? Well, the artist Hypho certainly has. It was her writing about Rumpelstiltskin's fate that grabbed my attention -- after seeing the glorious cuff she'd created. Hypho writes, "The standard version of the Grimm brothers' tale omits the telling of Rumpelstiltskin's later years. Following the fiasco with the miller's daughter, he set up shop to put his spinning and weaving to more noble ends. In time, his golden creations were coveted by the most acclaimed ladies of the court, including the queen herself. This bracelet is based on one of Rumpelstiltskin's most exquisite designs."

What a lovely idea, writing a useful future for the disappointed Rumpel. And just think, the "straw into gold"cuff Hypho created does seem to be gold from straw. Find this and other exquisite work at  Hypho's Etsy shop.

Hope this provides inspiration to poets, writers and fairy tale fans.
