Re: Celebrimbor

Considering the statement in LotR that Celebrimbor was a Feanorian, and that in RGEO that Galadriel was among the rebel Noldor, we cannot accept the Amanian Telerin story of Celebrimbor; nor can we accept that he was of the Gondolodrim. In this case, we cannot follow Tolkien's latest ideas because of insoluble contradictions with his published works. I see no reason to assume that Celebrimbor made the first Elessar in Nargothrond: how then would it have come to Idril and Earendil? I think the only solution is to go back to the story that the first was made by Enerdhil in Gondolin.
