I know this is an old thread, but a small point of correction is necessary.
The people of Cirdan that you call "Falmari" are actually called the Falathrim, or the Elves of the Falas. As the remaining Teleri, led by Olwe waited at the mouth of the Sirion where the Vanyar and Noldor had crossed to Aman, they were befriended by Osse. Finwe and the Noldor wished for the Teleri to come to Aman so they beseeched Ulmo to bring them. Osse was unhappy that they were leaving and convinced many to stay. These were the Falathrim, the Elves of the Falas of whom Cirdan the Shipwright was their lord.
Now, those of the Teleri who left for Aman with Olwe boarded the island that Ulmo used to bring the others across the sea. Loth to see them go, Osse called to them and they begged Ulmo to stop and Osse anchored the island to the floor of the sea where it remained thereafter known as Tol Eressea, the Lonely Isle. Here the Teleri remained for many years and learned from Osse. Eventually they desired to see the light of Valinor, so Osse, though he grieved it, taught them to build ships and gave them many great swans to pull them to Aman.
These were the Falmari, or Sea-Elves who came to Eldamar and lived on the Bay of Elvenhome at Alqualonde, the Haven of the Swans. They were the only Teleri, save Elwe who were counted among the Calaquendi, because they came to Amon and beheld the Light of the Two Tree, though much later than the Vanyar and Noldor, and they were sundered from them in many ways.
