What Is That and What Do You Do With It?

I decided to periodically share with you some of the tools and equipment I use.  This is one of my favorite pieces of equipment that I use everyday.  It's the mighty flex shaft.  It's one of those multi-use pieces of equipment.  It can drill, polish, cut metal, hammer, make a sandwich...

A Sign of Peace

There are days I go into my studio, tinker around and end up making something for myself. With all of the turmoil in the news, we all could use a little peace of mind.  So I made a peace sign necklace.  Peace starts from within.

Welcome To My Madness

I spent most of the day sitting at my bench working.  I thought I'd share my "madness" with you.   This is where everything comes to life.  I'm working on a new collection right now that I'll be sharing with you soon.  As you can see from looking at my bench, I'm a little bit of a tool junkie.  I'll be sharing my tools with you periodically.

Book Cover

I was wandering through a bookstore with my daughter this weekend, when she spotted the book "1000 Bags, Tags & Labels - Distinctive Designs for Every Industry" buy Kiki Eldridge.  The book features my "bags, tags & labels" on the front cover.  I worked with Maureen Erbe of Erbe Design and Pam Esposito in creating the designs.

I've been putting this off for way too long, but my blog is finally here.  It will be my place to share new designs, show my studio madness, muse about life and keep you updated about Lisa W.  I hope you enjoy the journey!
