23. Crying Phoenix (Harry Potter Art Yarn Advent Calendar)

"So ends the famous Harry Potter," said Riddle's distant voice. "Alone in the Chamber of Secrets, forsaken by his friends, defeated at last by the Dark Lord he so unwisely challenged. You'll be back with your dear Mudblood mother soon, Harry... She bought you twelve years of borrowed time ... but Lord Voldemort got you in the end, as you knew he must …" If this is dying, thought Harry, it's not so bad. Even the pain was leaving him... But was this dying?  Instead of going black, the Chamber seemed to be coming back into focus. Harry gave his head a little shake and there was Fawkes, still resting his head on Harry's arm. A pearly patch of tears was shining all around the wound – except that there was no wound.

- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling


Description: I chose bright red and sunshine yellow to represent the red and gold plumage of the phoenix. I made sure to use different tones of red to increase burning/flaming quality, added golden angelina for even more splendour, and spun in tear-shaped glass beads of two different sizes.
