One of my brass beads recently racked up some miles on its way to its new home. I gave this one to a friend in South Carolina last spring. He recently gifted it to another friend, and it now resides with him in Bavaria Germany!
(The full story is, that the knife was only available in the US, and the friend in SC was kind enough to act as a go between to order it and get it to the fellow in Germany, sending the bead along as a gift with it. Gotta love knowing really COOL and KIND people!)
