A studio in progress – Lots of pictures

Okay, so you all have been wondering where I have been. We moved 3 weeks ago into our new home and have been busy ever since then working on my new studio. I am happy to say that I am almost done and am hoping to be done by the end of this week.

I am planning to hold an open house in about 3 weeks so everyone can come and see the new digs.

I am very excited to have this great space and I am really looking forward to getting back to making jewelry. I haven’t made anything in over a month and I have been going through the most awful withdrawals. I hope all is well with all of you and look forward to your comments.

Here it is from the beginning to now.
Where we started:

Framing Begins:

Hanging Sheet rock:

I hate mudding and sanding sheet rock. Wink

Getting closer:

The tables have been started: It even has SIX catch trays!

This is the one for the rolling mill and bench vise

Tables in the studio…. GETTING CLOSER!!!!!

    Holy Moly, Girl friend – you’ve been busy! Love the paint colors and totally covet your work bench! When you do something, you do it right with air handlers and everything!!!

    I would LOVE to come and see all your “newness!” It couldn’t happen to a nicer person.

    Best of Luck

    Yes Kim, we have been so busy, that is for sure. But along with that comes good nights sleep. ahhhh, I like that part. This has been a lot of fun to do. I am just glad that I have had as much support from my family as I have. They have been wonderful.

    I hope you do come and see all of this in person. I would love to see you again!
