I love my jewelry supplies!
Sometimes I don't want to use them because I like looking at them so much.
One thing that I have really changed in the last few years is how I store them and how I set up my studio.
I enjoy finding pretty containers, boxes and trays to jeep my findings and beads in. Like the small beaded box above (from an import store) it makes me happy to be surrounded by pretty items.
I could have used any old thing to store my buttons but when I reach for this smooth, shiny box, it makes me feel good.
I think it's important to take pride in your surroundings and give yourself little treats.
They don't have to be expensive or elaborate as long as they speak to you.
