Happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday, all! Today’s the day we take time to check out the desks of creative people from all over. Some are messy, some are neat, but all are interesting and creative. You can get all the details over at Julia’s.

My desk today is actually fairly clean, but it does show a few things I’ve been working on.

I saw this earring holder in an ad on the back of a magazine.  Crafter that I am, I said, “Hey, I can make that!”

And, so I did.  It’s in the oven baking right now and will be perfect for taking photos of earrings.

These bargello beads/pendants are a project from Polymer Clay Color Inspirations which I’ve been working through.  This  book is fantastic for learning about how to effectively use color in your work.

And finally, I needed some way to keep all my polymer clay tools organized.  Having them all in a container just wasn’t working.  They all would just fall against each other, lean on each other and hide the smaller tools.  So I constructed these dividers out of foam core and glued them into a photo box.  So far it’s working perfectly. 🙂

Hope you are having a happy and creative day!

  3. Cool earring stand! Love the necklace in post below. Hmm, nice storage idea for the tools. I’m starting trying my hand at jewelry and need something other than a box for my tools. Foamcore you say.? Neat! Happy WOYWW! Nan G #1

  6. Wow that looks like some time consuming work. But have to say looks like it would be a lot of fun too. Have a great day and Bright blessings to you and yours Roberta 26

  7. Lovely to se a desk with something a bit different going on. Love your earring stand and those bargellos are beautiful. Great custom storage too. Have a great week. MMx

  8. I just love your version of the earring stand! I’m always seeing things in gift shops and magazines and thinking – hey! I could have a go at making that! Rarely get round to it, though! Well done, you! Gorgeous colours on those pendants. I would love to know how to make these! Have a great day! Julie Ann #35

    1. Julie Ann, the book that I link to, Polymer Clay Color Inspirations, tells you exactly how to make those bargello beads. 🙂

  9. Loving the earring holder. Playing with wire like this actually looks difficult to me, so I’m always pleased to see a piece in process. Doesn’t make it look any easier, maybe just more accessible. Hope you have a great week.

  10. I love it when a storage solution presents itself and really works – well done you, it’s so nice to have something so accessible at hand. Love the bargello beads, how clever. I do the ‘I caould make that’ thing quite often. However..I rarely do, so am doubly impressed at your earring tree.

  11. What a brilliant stand – well done. I’m like you, see something made and think “I could do that”. Yes, a lovely way to display your work. I like the bargello and the colours. Have fun this coming week.

  12. I was impressed with the earring stand and was thinking wow what a great idea and then you let us see what in my opinion are some of the most beautiful beads I have ever seen. These are totally amazing and mini works of art.

  15. Heh. Your earring holder is cooler than the one in the magazine. The beads are stunning! Can’t wait to see what you make with them. 😀

  16. Brilliant earring holder, Sandy – and I like yours better, it’s got more wiggles 🙂 And your tool box is pretty smart too … I know what you mean about the bigger tools hiding the smaller tools, happens to me all the time. Hope you are having a good day. Elizabeth x #47

  17. I love that you saw it, and knew you could create one! Just so lovely, and that you can hang your beautiful pieces from it is a bonus! I can’t make jewelry, but yours sure are nice!

  18. Love the earring holder! That’s definitely some creative thinking with making your own. Even though I’m crafty, I don’t think I would have thought of that. I love the colorful earrings. They are great! I’m also impressed with your organizer with all the dividers. At first I thought maybe you bought one of those ones for Copic markers, but no! You made it! Kudos to you!

    1. Hi Sharon,

      I used a metal straight edge and an Xacto knife. The trick to nice cuts is to make many shallow passes, rather than trying to cut through it all at once.
