Me in my Studio

This is me working at my bench ┬áin my studio. It is messy and probably not as organized as it should be. My jeweler’s bench was found at a thrift store. It is cluttered with halfway done projects and stuff I’ve collected over the years. One day, I will clean it up and make spaces for all the things in here that I currently keep in boxes and stacked in various places. the cord to my left is for my flexshaft and on my bench you can also see my chasing tools in a little creamer pitcher I made several years ago; flexshaft burrs and tips in the organizer, and a few hammers and tools laying out.

The studio is in the basement of our home, which was nicely finished with electrical and lighting that makes the space a much better work area than some of the other houses we looked at before buying this house.
