My Jewelry Studio

For those people who know me, I live on my families ranch in rural west Texas. My family has lived here for the past thirty years. I moved back to SA in 1999, and currently live in an old farm house built in the 1930's.

My house is a nice house, has a nice view, but it is small. We have a two bedroom, one bath. (AHHHHH!) When I started this new jewelry venture back in September I quickly started to consume what limited space I had. Within seven months I was consuming all rooms with my "jewelry supply stash".

I ordered a custom building 32x14 for my jewelry studio. It has a sweet little front porch. I had it moved into my backyard, easy access from the house. My studio doubles as a guest room/studio. With the help of my loving parents, I now have beautiful cabinets and bookshelves throughout my little building. I have had alot of people hoping this will be my "public shop". I am sorry to say that no, this is just my private little place to harness my creative juices and take it all out of some poor non-working watches.

Trying Out The World of Blogging

I am a woman who tries to stay up with the times. I have a MySpace, I reluctantly have a Facebook account, I am on Flickr, Ning, Etsy Steam Team, Etsy, and now I have decided to try my hand at blogging. I feel the main reason is so many things are changing in my new company that I need to update people somehow, someway. I do short blogs on MySpace, but not everyone has a MS account.

Anyways, I have came across some fantastic artists over the course of 2008. I plan to highlight some of their work, discuss some of mine, and just muddle my way through this world of blogging.
