9... About Fracking Time!


I haven't said anything, because I didn't want to jinx it (like last time). But we had a couple come through the house 3 times in 4 days! And yesterday, they gave us an offer on our old house. We signed all the paperwork last night. We accepted their offer, except that we want to keep our fridge and gas dryer. Now we just have to wait to see if they accept our keeping of those two appliances and then it is a done deal!!

I am super super excited!! The call came in yesterday while I was torching and I was so loopy that I was shaking to the point I couldn't work any more. So... I worked on constructing jewelry instead...

"Snagged" Bracelet & Necklace

"Bang GAL!" Oranges

A Pair of Pretty Pendants

"Bloomin' Earrings"

"Another Sunrise"

Now the beads in the last piece should look familiar. It used to be THIS necklace. JOOLZ had purchased it but, sadly, it never sold. So I let the owner trade it out for something fresh and I decided to rework the beads. That long tail of cord next to the clasp is there because I think I want to take it apart. I am not convinced I like this, at all. It wears okay, but I think the orange cord it a little much. I guess it is back to the drawing board on that one.

Time to hit the torch!

Love, love, love the snag pieces. In all the colors. I think it is one my favorites of your new designs from the past few months.

I dunno Kerry...I like that last necklace. It is very dramatic. That color combo is fabulous.

Lynda said...

Love the last necklace. The orange is great. Congrats on selling!

I just LOVE your jewelry designs! Blue and orange are so cool. So many fresh ideas I can adapt to the polymer clay beads I've made waaay too many of, and use up some of my stash. (Bad English, but YKWIM)
Congratulations on finding a buyer - best wishes for a smooth sale!

Yea, an offer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll keep all my fingers crossed that this deal goes through.
Well, probably won't really cross my fingers - then how would I eat? But you know what I mean, right?

Lori said...

Woo Hoo! Great jewelry and Great news.
Sending lots of positive vibes that the sale goes smoothly. So when are you moving to the new house?

Kerry said...

Thanks for all the well wishes everyone!! And jewelry compliments too :)

We are still waiting to hear if they signed off on the appliances thing. Once everything is set, we'll close on this house in early August. And we will start moving to the new house as soon as I get through Corn Hill. So, about two weeks!!
