Vault 2013 Tour

The Vault
Welcome to The Vault tour as part of the "Where bloggers create" link party hosted by Karen (click here).  First a big THANK YOU to Karen for hosting this fun party. This will be my 3rd time participating and it's so much fun to look back and see how The Vault has evolved. I am a mixed media artist, mostly focusing on jewelry from vintage religious and other vintage or upcycled parts with an added metal-smithing element to most of my pieces. My Vault is a magical place that inspires me to create, so naturally I keep it filled with things that I love, whatever that may be. While snapping photos I noticed The Vault has become the home for many sweet little woodland creatures. Especially little deer. I guess I have a thing for those now! Be sure to check out the other studio spaces by clicking HERE. Enjoy the tour!
Look at all that treasure!
