Le Guin's Hayiya-if Symbol For Wiscon

I decided a while ago that I wanted to make a special pendant for Wiscon every year, starting now. I spent a long time trying to think about what would be wonderful to make and feeling blank. Then I realized what I wanted to do and went "of course".

I'm going to make pendants inspired by books written by Wiscon Guests of Honor.

The first one will be a Heyiya-if pendant, a holy symbol for the Kesh, from Ursula Leguin's "Always Coming Home". It took very long time to carve, but it's done and I will be making the black silver pendants in the next 2 weeks before Wiscon. I'm so pleased that the wax is done and that I'm _very_ happy with it, that I'm not being superstitious and I'm writing about it before they are actually cast.

I am very done for the day and looking forward to Wiscon.
