Studio Snapshots from 2015 November 21 2015

Window ledge filled with plants in my New England based studio

My studio is an old industrial mill building and it has huge windows that let in lots of great plant light.

Production Day: hammering some Halo Necklaces in gold & silver. After the hammering is done to add some beautiful light reflective texture I drill and polish each one before assembly.

Mid Century Modern Chairs Bankers Chairs in Green Vinyl

If you've been following along for a while you might be rolling your eyes at my ridiculous vintage chair photos at this point. Here are two more. The seat on the chairs is a light sage-y green vinyl.

Production Day: lots of pretty petal pendants personalized, drilled and now ready for a dee polish to bring out the shine.

Little nook in my studio to keep it cozy and bright
