I’ll keep this quite spoiler-free, but basically it’s a scene where a girl makes a bird out of some materials (one of those materials is mud, and one is glass). It’s a scene about creation and making something out of what you have.
I’m working on a new mud bird right now. Several of them, actually, and boy, are my hands dirty. And I am certainly getting lots of little cuts as I work with what I have and try to repurpose new things. I’m not just talking about writing projects (though I do have some of those!). Creation can be exhilarating. It can also be painful.
Anorie’s Whimsies on Etsy (aka our very own Annie!) is one of the few retailers with fantastic original Matched themed jewelry. She’s too modest to have ever mentioned her own jewelry on the site, but we love it so much that we just had to!
We’re especially attached to this beautiful pendant featuring Cassia’s poem to Ky, the featured lines of which originally appear in Crossed:
