It all started with a they/them wooden pronoun pin. I've always wanted an elegant pronoun pin that I could wear on my bag everyday and at events in addition to pronoun ribbons and tags on name badges, and after searching for a while for something that fits me I decided to make a couple for myself. Folks started asking where I got my pins, and the idea of a store was born.
Flash forward about a year, I left a rather toxic and stressful job and finally had the time to make the store and all the art ideas I had over the last decade a reality. With the support of dear friends and the murder of crows that hangs out outside the studio, Sevenish Magpies was born.
By shopping with Sevenish Magpies you are supporting not only me, a queer, trans, creator in Seattle, you're by extension supporting other artists and designers and local artisans that I commission art and services from, friendly queer-owned tea and coffee shops that I work out of, and the crows that eat the food on my studio porch. Caw!
One's for sorrow, two's for joy, and the rhyme ends at about seven. But sometimes things aren't just that clear-cut, especially with fast moving birds who flutter away at the earliest sign of danger. So there are about seven magpies here, give or take a few or a lot. Sevenish Magpies. That's all.
