House hunting

We’ve been wandering through western Oregon looking for a new place to live. It didn’t go very well. The prices have gone up significantly and nothing was speaking to me. Bummer.  Our house is on the market now, so we’ll see how that goes. I’d like to wait until we sell this one before buying anything else. I’m pretty conservative about money and stability. And so, we wait.

I did get out to the torch this week. I made bell flower headpins/components. Here are a few:

14kt Glass Bell Flower Headpins

Pale Pink Glass Bell Flower Headpins

The first picture shows the bell flowers in a glass that was underwhelming when I first got it. It has 14kt gold in the glass. As a regular bead, it didn’t really look that special, but in this form, I love it. It’s amazing in the sunlight! Gorgeous! As for the pale pink, well, they’re just so sweet.

You’ll be seeing lots of these, I think. They’re rather like potato chips – can’t do just one.
