Hello and happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday, all! My workdesk today consists not so much of working, but unpacking and sorting.
Spread out before you is my rather, um, largish, order from Fire Mountain Gems. (No, I’m not going to tell you just how large, that would be the one time the hubs would read my blog, lol.) I got some new tools, pliers, clay, sterling silver wire, and lotsa beads.
I’m especially excited to try that metal thingie in the middle with the holes in it. It’s draw plate, and if done right, one should be able to take large gauge wire, pull it through and get any finer gauge you want.
I’ve got tons of 12 & 14 gauge copper wire the hubby reclaimed for me from electronics, and I want to make it into more usable 16, 18 & 20 gauge. I’ll let you know how it works out.
They were having a sale on Swarovski crystals, so I got LOTS of those. I love using them in my jewelry designs.
Here’s a closer look at the draw plate, some glass pearls, copper beads, turquoise donuts, et al.
The calculator is out in the top photo because before I put things away, I’ll mark all beads & components with individual costs. This will help in pricing jewelry that gets sold later on.
So that’s my desk today. If you’d like to see what’s happening in the workspaces of other crafty creative people check out the weekly blog party over at Julia’s. It’s always a fun time!
P.S. FMG isn’t paying me to promote, I just think they’re a great company with excellent service and awesome prices.
