Art Beads, Inside the Studio

Studio Tour and Favorite Bead Artists

I completed the monumental feat of organizing and cleaning my studio this week. You can take a video tour of my creative space here:

I think this may be the reason motivation for cleaning up my bead room. I wanted to display my sari silk collection in this new shelf that I bought. This is now my favorite part of my studio. I can’t stop staring at it! Sari Silk by Design Talented One.

Wooden Display Trays from Nile Corp.

Pick Rack Metal Shelf from Global Industrial.

Now That’s a Jig by Brenda Schweder. I love keeping my favorite tools and supplies on display, they inspire me as much as anything else! I’ve amassed quite a collection of accessories for my jig.

Essential Jewelry Tools: Lindstrom Pliers and Metal Shears. Xuron Heavy Duty Flush Cutters. Euro Tool 1.5mm Hole Punch, Riveting Hammer and Metal Shears.  Steel Bench Block & Rubber Mallet. Wooden Daping Block & Dies.

Spruges: Pepe Tools Disk Cutter & 2 Lbs. Brass Mallet. Lortone 3A Tumbler with 2 Lbs. steel shot. Fretz Micro Ball Peen Hammer. Grobet Swiss File Cut 2.
