This week's post title presents a conundrum when it comes to penning puns.  Although its homonymic historical figure fits in nicely with this week's bead-heavy baubles (nearly no glue used this time, except for in Hooray for Hoopla.  But then it would be like one of the swinging sixties-style numbers to do something rebellious), he's a religious dude, a condition that puts the kibosh on all kinds of wordplay.  When blogging, I try to avoid the unholy triumvirate of cringe-inducing topics, namely, religion, politics, and money.  As well as anything else that sounds suspect.  For example, my first impulse was to christen the Amazon Adventure (necklace) the snappier and more menacing Fangs and Faces.  But that seemed wrong.  Especially when the faces in question are so cute.

Love the pink top and the parrot and unicorn necklaces.
