Happy Friday folks! This past week I finally -finally- finished this necklace. This had a long trip from mind to metal, starting out with just the Rebel Starbird pendant. Eventually I decided it would be a good idea to weave a metric ton of Viking knit for the rest of the necklace (it’s really only about forty yards of wire, I promise) and here’s the end result! It’s very tied into the aesthetics of Star Wars and Tatooine particularly, but I like to think it holds up even outside those associations.

Here’s a good rundown of earth history. I’ve been finding myself reading into earlier geologic time periods out of sheer fascination.
This is amazing.
There’s a really great documentary, “a history of planet earth” that walks you through it and it’s fascinating. The Cambrian explosion was neat as shit.
I love the way that the Quaternary period has both humans and sabre tooth cats as a hazard. it makes you realize how much can change over geologic timescales.

no but the best part is how he got the name:
his name was originally “potatoes,” and his owner, willoughby bertie, told the stable lad who helped him to write the horse’s name on a feed bin. the boy misheard it as, literally “pot-eight-o’s” and wrote it with 8 o’s. bertie found it so funny that he kept that as the horses name.
