Bead & Jewelry Linky Love


Yes, this is what it looks like - π taken to eight decimal points. I made this "Piece of Pi" pendant and tucked it away in my Etsy store last year completely on a whim, thinking it would just sit around looking beautifully mathematical. So, of course, it sold almost immediately. I find it quite thrilling that there are actually other geeky, jewelry-loving people out there in the world. I've been thinking I might make a more complex version this year...

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Here are your new bead and jewelry links for the week:

If you get those pi pendants back up on Etsy, tell me - I have some deeply geeky friends who would adore them.

It took me a minute when looking at it, before I read the description, to figure out what it was. When it clicked, a big smile came on my face. I agree, if this comes back up, I want one!
