A look at my work table

A peek into my studio this week shows my work in progress. On this particular day I was quite productive - making mostly window pendants and a few pairs of earrings. I find it more efficient to work in batches, so I'll make the fronts one day, sand them and then spend the next day building the pieces.

In the first picture you can see some of my commonly used tools and custom mixed polymer colors. Polymer is mixed and conditioned using a pasta machine, which gives me nice even sheets to work with. And, yes, it is a very neat and tidy scene. I work best in an organized environment. Plus it's really easy to color contaminate polymer, so you've got to keep things clean!
