Leather Bead

That would be leather dye all over my hand.
Someone I know asked for SCAdians (SCA-people) to make beads for her daughter's 18th birthday.  I believe the results were strung up like Viking beads on a dress.  Knowing the daughter, I really wanted to make something for her.  My problem: I don't do anything with beads.  It's one of the few crafts I am not interested in learning (making lace and beading: I think they are really cool, but just not my aesthetic).  

My solution: I stitched a leather bead together!  I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures, but I didn't notice how blurry they were until I'd already given away the bead.  I'm quite pleased with the results.

Also, I just figured out how to put two images on the same line in Blogger posts, by reading the HTML and understanding what divs are.  Blogger apparently makes a separate div for each photo, and then puts the photo inside the div.  I simply cut the coding for the second image and pasted it inside the first photo's div, right after the code for the first image.  Then I deleted the second (now empty) div.

Bwahahaha.  Using my coding knowledge already!  Yay.  ~Kell
