Jewelry Tool Chest
On Fridays I have been going over to my very talented artist friend Jill Shulse's house to work in her studio. I have admired Jill's jewelry for some time now and she has graciously been teaching me some metalsmithing techniques. Above is my progress so far.
I have been enjoying making jewelry so much that I decided I needed to gather some supplies of my own. Here is a mechanics chest that I had bought at the annual Newburg village wide rummage sale several years ago. I hadn't found a use for it until now. It just didn't seem to fit my paints or stamping supplies. Plus I needed to repair the drawers. Speaking of rummages, I am looking forward to the season starting.
Hmmm, now to get organized. I made a list of must have items the last time I was at Jill's house. Many I already have. I took jewelry in High School and I even knew where my box was from then :) Actually I have used the supplies here and there since then. Jill recommended Volcano Arts for the supplies I still needed. I even looked around but they seemed to have everything that I needed with reasonable prices.
I love organizing (if I'm in the mood). Here is my tool box all packed with supplies that I already have. I just need my order to arrive. Then I'm all ready for my next visit with Jill.
