Inside ~ Outside Reveal!

Well, it's finished!  The office in the house has been delegated to only the fine finishing of jewelry ~


Designing takes place here ~

While the art of beading and chaining takes place here ~




Plenty of storage for all the precious findings, wire, metal, beads and pearls ~


Three vintage jewelry boxes hold all the vintage "jewels"


Lillie provides the "form" for final fittings ~

I decided to forgo any idea of shabby chic, euro flair, or kitchy design, for an office that would be functional.  I knew I needed to be able to see my materials in order to use them.  This works for me!

So ~ onward,  to the outside and my Studio!  The Studio is attached to our guest house and offers complete privacy for both artist and guest.  How lucky can a girl get?  I'm able to pound, etch, solder and do all sorts of yucky stuff without bothering anyone!












 During the past three years my Studio has morphed from dedicated paper art, to jewelry.  Will I be changing it again?  I would think and hope so....

As my jewelry evolves, so will the work place ~ new tools and equipment come with the territory.
I hope you enjoyed my reveal.  I so enjoyed sharing it with you.

Oh, by the way ~ each day, the office and/or Studio start out in a very clean and pristine state BUT...so long as I'm involved in a project the space often could be mistaken for Grant taking Richmond!!

Have a most beautiful week, my lovely friends.  I'm off to get ready for some very, very special friends who will be spending the next two days with us!

Your space is fantastic Karen! Wow :D I am in awe of the amount of space, light and order you have created. The table with the "Queen Anne" style legs reminds me of a coffee table I have. I gotta get sorted!
