Baubles Bangles and Beads

For reasons that are not readily apparent even to me, I have approximately eleventy metric tons of Mardi Gras beads in a drawer in my hutch. I don't know know where most of them came from -- as far as I can remember, I've only attended a "Mardi Gras"-themed event once in my life, and I am pretty sure that I left my shirt on for most of it.

Not all the necklaces are plain old beads. One of them features plastic Dos Equis bottle caps, one of them has a giant car-emblem-sized Nittany Lion pendant, and of course one has the little shiny red lobster on it, a piece of one of my old Halloween costumes.

I tried to take pictures with my fancy prime lens but I haven't yet learned how to focus with that sucker, plus Shae doesn't exactly sit still ever, so we're a little fuzzy. Probably I should take a class or something, but I'm cheap and I'm lazy and I like having stuff to bitch about.
