“His enemy halted again, facing him, and the shadow about it reached out like two vast wings. It raised the whip, and the thongs whined and cracked. Fire came from its nostrils” J.R.R Tolkien-The Fellowship of the Ring

Kelly of The Unique Sheep worked with me to create this special colorway called Shadow Fire. Tolkien describes the Balrog as wreathed in shadow and flame, fire and darkness.
Ellen at Earthfaire is carrying special kits for this that include seed beads and this special colorway as well as an additional fabulous colorway called Dragon Fire which is also one of my favorites.
