Today we visit the workspace of Lisajoy Sachs from Saxdsign who sells natural opals, gem stones, other stone supplies for jewellery making. Please visit her shop and favourite some items, maybe even buy something!!
Here’s what Lisajoy has to say about her workspace:
I’ve been in the jewelry designing/making industry for about 20 years now, and before then I was a professional glass blower for 8 years. I’ve pretty much always owned my own business, and consider myself a maker of things.
Right here in the Lovely City of Baltimore I have a really large studio it is about 23×23 feet with 9 foot ceilings – it is JAM packed with lots of projects.
Less than a year ago I learned how to make my own cabochons and do lapidary work – since then I have sold off some of my glass blowing equipment to make room for lapidary equipment, and I even have a hole drilling station now.
My biggest problem is organization – so every couple of weeks I pick a spot to organize – last week was the “Hole drilling” station. I can drill a hole in Most of my cabochons now. It has been such a success for me to be able to add that option for my clients – I am probably drilling holes every day now since the drill press was added to my shop.
