I've decided to change my weekly My Creative Space posts to Wednesday, not Thursday, as the bulk of the participants in the meme all live in Australia--and for them it is already Thursday, so I would be a day behind!
Today I've been working on a custom order for a client who is getting married soon. I designed a pair of earrings to compliment the floral lace of her wedding dress, and the colors of its accompanying sash. Here is the lace motif started, resting on some of the initial sketches that I did for her (with a few tools of my trade.)
And here is a little peek into my workspace...I don't like sitting at desks for long lengths of time, so I can often be found making jewelry on the couch in our sunny living room. The wicker tray was originally a breakfast tray I believe--but it is perfect for holding all of my supplies in my lap while I'm working on a project!
I keep track of how long a design takes in the little notebook to the right. I have a collection of vintage trays that I use to hold my beads while I'm playing around with the design... one with ivy vines can be seen above. The little blue glass cup to the left holds my wire snippets which are eventually melted down and recycled into new findings.
