This kind of weed is legal

I put this necklace off for ages because it seemed like a whole lotta work.

I was right (so many edges and points and corners!), but I’m glad I finally did it because while it was tough going, it ended in far less frustration than I had expected.

A little stalk of fireweed for your neck. Well…not for your neck. Not this particular one anyway. This one sold at Halifax Crafters (to the same lad-ay who bought my Twin Otter necklace! I’m pretty psyched these two pieces will get to sit beside each other in her jewellery box), but I’ll make more.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a dog walk to enjoy before I hit to the nines at White Elephant tonight. I need a dress for the Hamilton Arts Awards, where I’m nominated as the emerging writer alongside established Hamilton poet (musician, composer, educator, and on and on and on…) Gary Barwin.

I don’t want to count chickens out of school, but I THINK WE’RE GOING TO WIN.
