The House with Chicken Legs is a magical book by Sophie Anderson full of joy, sorrow, rites of passage, and friendship that extend the bonds of usual convention. Although it is an easy read, this book really made me dig deep with thoughts of time, loneliness, and the idea of destiny. I love the idea of a destiny undefined. What about you?
Building this house out of sterling silver was an absolute adventure and I enjoyed every moment. From choosing the beautiful Mexican amber, hand cut clear quartz with wonderful inclusions, making the tiny copper accents for the front and creating the hinged door, this house is adorned with a ‘Yaga’ sign hanging inside. If you’re curious, you can peek through the windows and see the charm hanging from the outside, but the clinking sound of the charm will remind you of the magic within that wants to be found... and, of course, the chicken feet make this house complete.
I hope you enjoyed this journey as much as I did and I look forward to our next adventure together!
