What To Do When Your Workroom Is Such A Mess You Can't Work In There.....

If you thought the correct response to that was to tidy up said workroom, you were wrong. That's just silly! You take over another part of the apartment of course!

I went into jewellery making mode yesterday. I'm trying to find the best method to get the effect I want while still being do-able without too much set up and mess. Nowadays, something that I can set up and leave somewhere at least for a few days is perfect.

I've been playing with combinations of silver, fabric, paper, transfers, glass, resin, metal, solder, glaze, bamboo.. I think that's all. Tomorrow there will be a bit of clay involved as well.

I'll post some results once I know which direction I'm heading in.

In my very short online times between obsessing about pendants, I saw this kimono wrap skirt that Assemblage had made. I'm in love... with the skirt that is... and maybe have just a bit of a blog crush on the maker herself... how I'd love for her to make my wardrobe!

Melanie, You're a girl after my own heart! LOL My DH mistakenly thought once I had my own workroom, the rest of the house would be thread free! Creativity has no boundaries, it flows all over the house.

That skirt is divine. I'd like to have the waist to go with it too. :-)

That is quite an interesting list of mediums to work with. I'm looking forward to the results!

Oh darn.. the skirt is sold already! Having something vintage, yet wearing history is very Couture.

Will you be adding some of your own? I sure bet it would be a smashing hit.
