Disclaimer: Tolkien created everything Kortirion drabbles about.
Son of Craft, grandson of Skilful, what else could he be but a smith, working wonders with cunning hands? Celebrimbor delighted in Arda, time and again he pondered on the strength in spider’s webs, how cold air becomes frost crystals…
In Eregion, he turned to making the Three Rings, looking to the prime elements, fire, air, water… the sleeping power of flames, the wild airs, of breath and eagles’ wing-beats… the mighty Sirion’s ever-changing waters.
In Galadriel he recognised an affinity to that great river - powerful, steadfast, enduring, sustaining the land – to her he gifted Nenya, Ring of Waters.
