left corner of the working studio with pliers, dapping set, disc cutter, sheet metal, hammer collection, anvils, etc. I am not that excited about the Dremel and can't wait to invest in a Foredom hand drill.
I have closed up the gallery as of February 1st in preparation for opening up my own studio and shop in the gardens at our home. An addition is in the planning stages with being completed by the end of May, is what dh is telling me anyway. I believe him though for I know that he is quite frightened with all the gallery 'stuff' that is now hanging about our home. He made room for the larger pieces such as the antique furniture and display pieces including a fab, very large, case for the jewelry and the gorgeous horse hair couch and carved velvet chairs.

I still have space to move about and not pull my hair out trying to be organized even though I have been adding more to the mix from the gallery. Here is the set from the beginning if you want to see it a bit more spare.
This is a portion of the semi-precious and Czech beads stash for future work
I can come in during the day to work getting lost until my youngest comes home from school. It is a dream come true having it all at home and will have to pinch myself all the time when the addition is finished and actually out my back door. What is really going to blow my mind is having 'Claire' our vintage travel trailer as part of the experience also combined with the working studio, artisan jewelry and fiberware shop and her, our Shasta Compact, to sell atomic vintage from or lunches when openhouses or receptions are scheduled.
HOOT, HOOT!!!!! :) :) :)
Yesterday I also assembled this bracelet more on the way along with quotes and riveted rings.
