Pale Green Bell

Here's another bell, this one is textured and glazed pale green. Every one of these has a different sound. I find that if the bead hits the lowest part of the bottom edge it makes the nicest sound. Notice how the bead is hanging below the edge, when the bead swings it just hits the edge. If it was higher it would hit inside due to the circumference of the outer edge of the bell. It takes some doing to get the knots in just the right place on the cord.

I forgot to put a hole in several of the wind sails I hope I can drill them with a diamond bit. I'm up before the crack of dawn to wait in line and hopefully get a spot at the farmer's market this morning. Wish me luck. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

  6. Beautiful bell! Hope you have the best spot at the market and sell everything. Umm, that snake did have an arrow-shaped head, yipes! The patrolman had a time getting it uncoiled from the light fixture -- it was about 3 ft. when stretched out. Maybe he didn't want to say it was poisonous b/c it would scare me.

  7. Hi all, thanks, I did get into the market and sold quite a bit, this time of year it's easy to get in because not all the farmer's have items to sell because they aren't ripe; so they don't come, which leaves an empty space for me; as the days go by however, each week will get harder and harder.

    We have to get there at 5:30 and wait till 6:30 to find out if we get a space; then we only have half an hour to set up before folks start coming to the market.

    There is good food and music playing and the spaces are covered so that's good.

  8. I'm sure I'd break the bells if I was trying to put holes in them...I'd certainly put a crack or two in them...that'd be my luck! :)
