Thinking they'd be quite valuable, I snagged a bunch of vintage "flame" bulbs at an estate sale. Fortunately, it was a bag sale and I didn't pay much for them at all - which was a good thing, because they really don't sell well on eBay. But I couldn't just get rid of them. And before I knew it - I had designed my take on an Indian shrine. I like the way it turned out - even if it did take longer than I expected to inlay the nearly 200 pieces.
