On Wednesday I gave you a peek at my work table. So now that I’ve still got you all in my studio, I’m going to keep you here one more day and today I’ll share some of my reorganizing efforts that have been a spin-off of receiving an antique Hamilton Printers Cabinet for Christmas.
The printers cabinet gives me loads of space for organizing my beads. Let me pull open a couple of drawers for you. I put my art glass in the top drawer, with all my lampwork glass from Beads and Botanicals on the left side of that first drawer.
Lampwork from other artists fills out the rest of that drawer.
The next drawer contains my ceramic bead collection.
In the back row, the two bird beads and the bead tied with raffia are from Nan Emmett of Spirited Earth. The blue flower pendant and the green circle are from Nancy Schindler of Round Rabbit Extra. The curved bracelet focals in the front right compartment are by Shattera of Shattera Clay Studio.
Yesterday I hung a favorite watercolor, by Susan England, above my printers cabinet. Susan and her husband, Andrew, run a small, remotely located, vacation spot in Costa Rica, called Cabinas Los Cocos . My husband and I have stayed there several times. Susan is an artist and painted this scene from the mangroves behind their place. This picture fills me with so many happy memories, that I knew it would fill my studio with joy.
BOC Second Saturday State of Your Studio
This post is part of the monthly Beads Of Clay Second Saturday State of Your Studio blog hop, where you can share the state of your studio (your creative space) with other clay bead makers and jewelry designers.
What? It’s not the second Saturday??? That’s right, it’s almost the third Saturday of the month. Ah well, better late than never!
