If you could sneak into the room where I make my jewellery right now you’d probably be surprised at how much of a slob I am, or maybe you wouldn’t (based on the type of jewellery I make). I tend to get excited when I’m in the middle of making bits, jumping around from one idea to the next which means that whatever I grab for one project gets left somewhere on my desk as I move onto the next thing. Who has time to get up from the chair to put a piece of wire away anyway? But I envy people who have pristine work spaces where each set of pliers sits on it’s appropriate hook. And where natural light bursts through large windows onto empty work surfaces where you know amazing ideas will come to life. I’ll have to settle for the odd days when I feel like clearing away some of the clutter on my little desk, for brief moments when I imagine pristine.
