I made a list of all the things I'd like to post to my blog during the year and the first is a series of pictures and descriptions of my studio. The following picture is of my main work space. This picture is somewhat staged -- I'm not nearly so neat -- I set this up for a future post on using color. Anyway, I used the following colors and inspiration for a set of polymer clay bracelet beads.
My studio is like a haven and I spend as much of my free time as I can creating in this space. In the large, open basement of my 1969 ranch home in Lakewood, Colorado, I've carved out quite a lot of room for my tools, supplies and work tables. Here's a picture of my work table from a different angle (OK, now you see the usual state of my work table - a jumble of stuff) with one of my primary tools -- my polymer clay oven. Sometime during the year I'll upgrade the oven.

- Unusual findings
- Creative jewelry displays
