    Music, Pirates (Or groups like The Jolly Rogers which combines the best of both worlds), and random geeky things. What more is there to say?
  1. Pewter Buttons and Breast Cancer Pins

    They are definitely nice. I'm still taking inventory and snapping pictures, it's a long process. Every time I turn around I'm finding more of them, so it's constant note taking and the like. He had made a few thousand for PyrateCon 2010, but wasn't able to go as he was recovering from his bypass.
  2. I wasn't sure if I could post in the old threads or not, but since the topics weren't mine I figured I would go on and make a new thread. I have literal tons of pewter buttons that Renfairepirate had poured, along with some breast cancer pins. He ascended to Pirate Heaven in October of 2014, and I don't want to melt them down (especially the ones that are already antiqued). Pouring these buttons was an extensive hobby of his, one that he turned into a business on here and eBay to the satisfaction of hundreds of people over the years. I will be continuing his craft once I no longer have countless boxes of his buttons (and maybe I won't take a Save the Wubblies to the foot). All Breast Cancer pin profits go to breast cancer research. I have some button styles in the hundreds, others less than fifty. I'm taking updated pictures, and you can find them on my Etsy store as I post them online. If anyone is interested, or has any questions, feel free to let me know.
  3. Welcome aboard!

    Ahoy mateys! My name is Jessica, and I just turned 24. My father used to frequent these forums, so that's where I heard of the place. We used to frequent the Kansas City RenFaire, occasionally traveling to St. Louis and, on one occasion, PyrateCon (Which I wasn't allowed to go to, because my parent's weren't fond of the idea of a 17 year old running around New Orleans). I play a lot of video games and am attending school for Software and Mobile Application Development at the moment. I actually set the pirate aspect of my life aside for a while after my dad's passing, but am back here since I (finally) found his tutorial on the forums for pewter buttons. I hope to one day be able to do leatherworking, but for now I'll live with chatting with people who have similar interest. That's why we're all here, after all. (Basically I ran out of things to say and just kept rambling...)
