With my ever increasing passion and enthusiasm for jewellery, my husband decided to build me a studio.
He's in the building trade, so he set to work with a lot of building materials gathered from work sites that would otherwise have been discarded in the skips.
Over time, the little room started coming together and I began getting rather excited about what was to come.
It began feeling real when an electrician friend came and wired it up, and a few weeks ago I was finally in there.
It's actually not quite finished off in a few spots yet, but dear Tony hasn't been allowed near the room because he can't get me out of it.
I love sitting out there and working. The morning sun comes in the window and I have good artificial light if working in the evening.
There's still a few tools on my list of 'must have' supplies, but for now I'm doing quite okay with what I have. Often starting out with less makes you a much better craftsperson when you finally get some of the bits and pieces that make life easier.
He's a very clever cookie, isn't he!
