Over on Offbeat Bride, we’re featuring our sponsor Kythryn from Wyrding Studios. Along with some of her awesome sculptural jewelry, she also shared with us a glimpse into her workspace, and I couldn’t resist sharing it with the Homies…
I work in one corner of the living room of my Victorian house — it’s a brick hearth where a woodstove used to be — in an amazing antique chair that I found at a thrift store. My workbench is an antique sewing machine table.
Most of the paintings are done by friends: The DNA angel is MCA Hogarth, the street scene is by a local Iraqi painter — merging the streets here in Concord New Hampshire and his old neighborhood in Baghdad. And there are a couple of little paintings by Erin Morgenstern (author of The Night Circus — I’ve made a number of necklaces for her!) tucked in among the crystals and stones and various sentimental items.
This is a pretty typical work day — there are some necklaces in progress on the workbench, some bagged inventory items that I just added to the website today, and a giant bowl of beads that people love to rummage through when they’re here.
