"The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug." - Mark Twain

I'm not going to say that the best thing about LA jeweler Pade Vavra's bug bracelets is their description on her website...because the bracelets themselves have that quirky macabre quality that I find irresistible. However, the sentence "sacred bugs, who all died of natural causes after living long, meaningful lives on an exotic bug farm" is equally hard to resist...Photobucket

    these are an import from a south asian country (can't remember which) and not unique to this studio. i.e. you can find them cheaper around!

    i have one i bought at a street vendor a number of years ago, now i can't find it!

    That is fabulous. Your choice of quotes is equally great.
