EtsyMetal Blog Carnival: Favorite Things to Do in the Studio

October 07, 2013 1 min read


Favorite Things to Do in the Studio
What are your favorite things to do in the studio? Any favorite techniques, tools that you like to use...?

My favorite thing to do in the studio is making jewelry, what a surprise. One of the reasons of course is: there isn't any chance to do other things well. Every horizontal surface, except the floor, is covered with tools, half finished jewelry and usually a decent amount of dust and grime. Not very inviting to bring other tasks into the studio.

So the studio is really the dedicated place were I get my handy work done. Not a bad thing at all. Although it does sometimes feel like I have to drag myself into that room in the late mornings, once I start working it quickly becomes my happy place. Time to produce and get dirty.

This summer I started listening to audiobooks via headphones while finishing my work. It makes time fly a lot quicker and is more entertaining. Last Friday I played Tina Frey's "Bossypants", which resulted in sudden burst of loud laughter coming out of my studio. Guess my neighbors think I am starting to go crazy. Well, let them think that. I am certainly having fun listening while being productive at the same time.

Feel free to check out what other EtsyMetal members like to do in their studios.
