"As there is little foolish wand-waving here, many of you will hardly believe this is magic. I don't expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses.... I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death -- if you aren't as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach."
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J. K. Rowling
Description: I chose alpaca fibre as it is very shiny, and Snape is described as kind of oily, and having greasy black hair. I added green glass beads for his Slytherin background and also for something we will only learn very late in the series (Lily’s eyes), and grey glass beads as I didn’t think black beads for Snape’s black eyes would be visible enough. Both varieties of beads are of the same type: matte with a silver core, which makes them kind of shine from within altough the surface isn’t shiny.
Fibre Types: alpaca fibre
Colours: black Add-Ins: black thread, and matte glass beads with a silver core: tiny grey ones and larger green ones
