Jan 22 Circle A Necklace

Jan 22, the international day of solidarity with trans prisoners, represents a lot to Vanessa.  It was her first point of contact with us in Austin, and gave her a chance to share her story with hundreds, if not thousands of people.  We’re working with her to make this upcoming year even more productive in the fight for trans prisoners rights.  She made this beautiful necklace with a circle A to represent Austin Anarchist Black Cross (intentionally made upside down because she preferred it that way), with “Jan 22” painted on the inside of the letters.  The back is an “X” that can also be read as a “V” to represent her name, and her friend Xy.  This necklace is entirely handmade from paper, wax, glitter from a card, and makeshift dye.
