is Bead Porn Day at The Cerebral Dilettante. Because I'm just not that organized.
Today is devoted to Pewter Porn.
I stopped by the knitting shop (finally) to pick up some pewter buttons because Erin Prais-Hintz dared me to use a button in something. (Because I mentioned I really needed to learn how to use buttons). FINE. Here they are:
No, they're not terribly button-like. I'm starting out slow with the button thing.
And I got another dang email from Happy Mango Beads about another one of their silly pewter sales so I had to buy these pewter totem beads:
Pictured clockwise from upper left are an owl (upside-down, sorry), an orca (also upside-down), a frog, a raven (again, upside-down), a salmon and another salmon (both naturally upside-down), and two suns in the middle. I'm thinking a bracelet or two, maybe some simple knotted necklaces. Not sure I will be able to resist the impulse of turning the two suns into earrings. Really heavy earrings.
