Dispatch from the straw bale house ... and LUV Heart Hoops

Straw bale house
.
We have internet now at the straw bale house! So I’m writing from there as we try to finish up countless loose ends and little projects. 
.
Since it’s coming up on holiday time and craft show season, I had to bring a little work with me. I set up my steel block, my hammers and my wire on our staircase and made a small batch of LUV Heart Hoop earrings and Wishbone Earrings. These are the first pieces I’ve made in our future home!

If you want to see more of the process that Ben and I have undertaken to build this home ourselves, you can find a couple story highlights on my Instagram page that document the entire journey. 
.
The next few folks to order Hearts or Wishbones will be getting a pair I made at the straw bale house :). Below are a few more pics of what’s currently going on tonight:
