Sorting the Studio and New Pendants

I recently had a massive cleanout in the studio and sorted everything.  It all got rearranged and labelled (yes I’m obsessive) and dusted and wiped…you get the picture…huge cleanout.  Well I found all sorts of goodies in boxes and bags and hidden in cupboards – hmmm way too much.  I decided to get it out,…
