(Highlight to View) Prompt: Threads. As light as gossamer or spun into a thread; holding things together at the seams; yarn woven into a tapestry or the warmest blanket; twisted into string, a cord, a rope. Threads of memory or of hair. Loose threads..
Note: I did say I had too many ideas for this prompt. And here I'm waxing lyrical about braided cord.
Summary: "A cord of three strands is not easily broken."
This is a necklace and bracelet and earrings set representing Severus and Hermione as a woven cord; together they are stronger than they are alone, their differing strengths complement each other, each one fills in the gap left by the other's lack. So different, and yet their differences are in counterpoint, coming together from opposite directions, just as the green threads and the warm yellow/brown threads cross over each other in opposite directions, and that very crossing is what makes the braid strong.

Technical notes: The necklace and bracelet are made of 16-strand hollow Kumihimo braid in artificial silk and a touch of metallic lurex. The bracelet is adjustable; one widens it, puts it over one's wrist, and then pulls it closed with the dangles. The dangles are done in macrame square knots with the same yarn as the bracelet. The earrings also use the same yarn, done in macrame alternating half-hitches, then a brass bead threaded onto the cord, and the cord tied into an overhand knot.
