Here it is – my messy workshop!

Standard

Here’s a tour of my room – a packrat’s paradise where I create, dream and spend way too much time on the Internet!

To see my photos please click on the Messy Workshop tab at the  top of the page (right under my banner). You can click on the photos to make them larger.

About lilruby jewelry

My name is Joan Williams and I'm a self taught jewelry designer and mixed media artist. I was born and raised in the Chicago area, and I now live in the Missouri Ozarks with my husband, son and jillions of beads - along with lots of ephemera and stuff that my packrat ancestors saved (and I'm so glad they did)! My passion is creating jewelry that bears the patina of time and travel, using a blend of new components and found objects. I'm also crazy about antiques, horses, flowers, rusty hinges and chipped paint, so you never know what I might be inspired to talk about. I hope you'll stop by from time to time to see what I'm up to! Click below to visit my Etsy shop and my Facebook page, and to see additional photos on Flickr.

  1. Wow, if I had a space like this I would invite friends to visit me there. It’s simply lovely! When I first saw your watchmaker’s table the little man who fixed Woody in one of the Toy Story movies came to mind. I loved his tool box like I love your space.

  2. hahahaha Packrat! =) I have been accused of being one of those… I believe it’s just being thrifty – you never know when you will need something again and either not be able to afford it or find another like it! LOL

    Wow! LOVE that Watchmaker’s bench!!!

    Those are really pretty mosaic pieces!!!

    And wow, I’m so envious of all those bead boxes! I want to have a stash like that some day! It seems like I’ve got a good start to building it! LOL

    I am in love with all your shelving units – I LOVE wood furniture! And you have some great pieces!

    You did a great job with Natasha’s hair!!!

    I loved seeing all of your stuff! I think you have an awesome place to create your wonderful creations! Thank you for sharing your space with us!!! =)
