Carolina Bead Shop Pretties!

Awhile ago, I won a gift certificate to Carolina's Bead Shop on Etsy, courtesy of Mamarazzi. The other day, my beauties arrived!

Aren't they beautiful? They are a cog with a sun wheel pattern inside. These scream "steampunk" to me, and considering the Ehrfurt Union symbol that Evan drafted....these are brilliantly perfect.

I'm thinking I'll make earrings out of them for my (now three years running) costume plan. They're a good size for earrings with my now sheared hairdo. I will keep them more Spartan, less High Society, but I know this thing: I'm going to have a lot of fun accessorizing with these babies!
