Where Bloggers Create 2016 - Dry Gulch Beads & Jewelry



Hello, and welcome to the Where Bloggers Create 2016 blog party!  We're very excited to be part of the annual tradition.  Dry Gulch is a family owned and operated jewelry and accessory business, below we'll show you each of our workspaces.   Let's start the tour with Deborah's and Catherine's creative spaces!

The Upstairs Table
Upstairs is the blogging and painting room. We leave the Cooking Channel on as background noise while we work on our Painted Pendants line of findings and components. This is also one of the spaces where we create jewelry pieces.  

Upstairs is our favorite place to work because of the natural light coming in, plus the Dry Gulch dogs can sit with us.



The basement space is our work-in-progress space, and houses our sewing, leather and metalsmithing projects. Whenever we need to work on our Boho Bags line, or solder some metal together, or stamp a custom order, the basement is the place to be!!

We plan on moving all of our creative projects to the basement. We will have vintage lighting, recycled shelves and more to help us organize all of our projects. By the next Where Bloggers Create blog party, we hope to show you our brand new creative space!


Deborah's jewelry making space features a wall of organized beads, wire and findings, and a creation desk, complete with a gorgeous blue chair!


    

New jewelry is being made at Jennifer's creative workspace. She also has a wall of beads and findings, but she creates much of our paper packaging using her stash of paper and embellishments.


Thanks for coming to see our workspace!  A big thank you goes to Karen at My Desert Cottage for hosting this wonderful event.  Now head on over to the official Where Bloggers Create page to see all the fabulous creative spaces!
