My Jeweler's Studio

I just love my studio. It may not be big, but I try my best to make sure it has character! I spend a great deal of time here, so it has to be a place that inspires me. I love toys, and my studio is a perfect place to deck out in stuffed animals and little trinkets I find. Admittedly, these things would be pretty ridiculous out in my living room. So with my studio I really get to be a kid again!

Here are some of the tools I use when making my jewelry...and some cupcake key toppers I got creative with. They come in a set of 6, and the other three are on my keys. Aren't they fun?

I love mint and red together, so I painted a mint accent wall and added a red floral arrangement. I know it's a slightly strange combination, but I like it!

This is my inspiration wall, where I pull photos of jewelry I just adore out of magazines. A few of my favorites are Dior Fine Jewelry, Ippolita, Chanel Fine Jewelry, and Stephen Webster.

I had to decorate the studio with some of my husband's work! These three images look great together.

I especially love kitschy pin up pics from the 50s and 60s. I got these at a flea market and discovered they are reproductions from the famed pin-up artist Gil Elvgren. He has literally hundreds of photos like these. I love the expression on the blonde's face. Who is your favorite?
