Leanne said...

Lovely space! I need to learn to take photos like that :)

Esther said...

beautiful space of course.. it smell wood and metal .; and some rose's perfume.. rhinestones with little soldiers , ribbon with sandpaper.. it looks an old "atelier de couture" (don't find the word, i think sewing studio ) what a chance!

bajunajewelry said...

I love your pretty blog and look forward to all the pretty jewelry you will make with the filigrees and findings from Jill's shop. She couldn't have picked a more talented artist to introduce to us all!

Karen said...

What a beautiful studio space you have, Diane! I've been following for a bit and love your blog. I read each and every entry.

The Lone Dollier said...

WOW a workbench designed for you! LOVE IT!!!!

I can't complain, I have a 10 x 20 storage building that's been turned into a studio, but I dream of a bright open place in my home where I can play and design and build my roomboxes and mini dolls.

Thank you for sharing part of your world.

This is cruel and unusual punishment! I loved seeing your space on Crescendoh ... it's almost as beautiful as your jewelry!

Katsui Jewelry said...

Thanks for your nice words about Katie, Diane. You get ir! I love that you talk to your daughter daily. They are just a treasure...not perfect, but neither are we!

You know she is older...just living with us during grad school. She was gone from 18-28. Long story, started with some depression after a bad break-up and drastically changing directions. She will probably be on her own next year. Then we will talk on the phone daily...maybe!!!

Hugs,
Suz

CATHY said...

Hi Diane! I really enjoyed checking out where you create all those beautiful pieces of jewelry as well as reading about you on Crescendoh. I visit your blog often and meant to tell you that I love your new logo - the two little girls holding hands. How creative to crop the vintage photo to only show this. Cheers from Brussels - Cathy
