Studio Time

In my new apartment, I actually have proper space designated for all my arts and crafts as well as my computer...:)

This room will grow right along with me through my journey into the world of jewelry designing.

I thought I could perhaps share with you the humble beginnings and as I add to the room, you could experience it's growth right along with me.

At the same time, I get to show you some works in progress which are always fun!

My desk...:) It's old, it's beat up and I LOVE it...:D

Some of the pieces I've begun to lay out. I'm either waiting for findings to complete them, or they haven't told me yet quite how they want to be finished...;)

The new way I'll be shooting my earrings. The photo is to scale so it should give people an idea of how it'll fit them wihtout the ew factor of a live model!

The beginnings of my storage empire...:D I'm going to be getting more of these as well as shelving, storage containers that are stackable and probably a tool box. I'm only JUST starting to amass the tools I need

My photography area. Pitiful right now, and you'd laugh at the horror of a light-box I just made for myself, but it'll be improved as I go!

I have so many plans. Right now, I've got boxes everywhere from moving, but I have been told I have a locker so those will be going in there. Once that's done, I'll be able to put up my drawing table and maybe, ya know, draw things now and then...;D

I want to get tons of inexpensive plastic storage for ALL my art supplies. Right now, everything is crammed into boxes. I need to seriously go through it all and see if there's anything duplicated that I could give to charity or bring to my old school to see if any of the students there could use a bit of help with free supplies. Especially the Interior Design department. There's a lot of tools I purchased that I just do not use because I changed programs, some of which are very expensive to purchase new and are hard to find used.

I also have plans for the wall my desk is against to inspire me and brighten up the place...:) I come across fabulous photographs of decor, jewelry and art all the time. I fully intend on asking permission of the artists to print out the low res versions of their items and plaster my wall with them. So my whole wall will become a super colorful inspiration board!

Of course, I'll need a printer for that...*lol*

How could I NOT want to work in such a space???

So tell me, what does YOUR work space look like? Feel free to share!

Whenever I get the urge to organize my workspace I always put like things together - colors of yarn, needles. buttons. That way I have them all in one spot and it's easy to see if I have the right color or size.

Your inspiration wall sounds like it'll be great. You'll have to post photos when it's done, I'd love to see it.
