The Workroom is Closed.

 Although this image is from the opening night, I have always seen it as a toast to the shop.  I find it a fitting image now that the shop is closed.


The last day of Workroom719 was on January 5th, 2010 when the keys were handed back to the landlord.  The images above are from that last day. The shop was returned (almost) to the original state in which I received it.

All of the artists and designers included in the shop are still creating work. If you are interested in anything from any of them, please feel free to contact me (workroom719@gmail.com) or you can contact them directly from the links below the Workroom Artists and Friends header.

Thank you for all the wonderful support. I feel the shop was a great success.


Only Six Days Left!

pyrite, silver and brass ring by Scarlet Chamberlin - Wow!

There are Six days left of Workroom719. Please come in for a last viewing.
There are a few new bags from Larry Olmstead which are on sample sale, a new ring from Scarlet Chamberlin which is to die for (see above), and hand made wolves and birds from Suzy Root

The shop will be open every day:  now through New Year's Eve. After that, the shop will be closed.
I look forward to seeing you.


Hand Made Animals by Suzy Root

Foxes by Suzy Root

Just in time! These wonderful hand made foxes and birds were brought in by Suzy Root the designer of Super-B animals. Each one is an original piece of art. I personally love the distinct personalities of each one.

This little red one is perfect tree ornament size. The dog is a push-me-pull-me, about 2 feet long.
Stop in and get them while they are still available. Rumor has it, this might be the last batch ever!


Scarlet Chamberlin Jewelry Trunk Show, Saturday, December 19th!

Scarlet Chamberlin necklaces, Abra Ancliffe silhouettes, Chelsea Heffner hand-printed silk scarf above.

Scarlet Chamberlin has created some new pieces especially for Workroom719. Everyone is invited to her Trunk Show Event this Saturday, December 19th from 12-7pm (wine will be served).

The day the workroom shop was confirmed, Scarlet selected stones, leather , and silver and gold and chains from her personal 15 year collection of treasures. This entire collection has been made from the selections made that day.  The results reflect an exciting combination of form, color and texture.  The pieces above are just a taste of the beautiful jewelry she will have this Saturday.  There will be a large selection of earrings and bracelets at the event, as well as the statement necklaces above, for amazing gift giving.

Scarlet is known for her custom pieces as well - she just made two amazing pieces for me from stones and silver beads that my grandmother gave me.  I will probably be wearing them at the event.

When: Saturday, December 19th, 12-7pm
Where: Workroom719

We are looking forward to seeing you.

Part of the fun of making custom bags and accessories is the tester models

likes to have fun trying new color combinations, stitch processes and
design features.  All of them are created by hand with the same love and
care that he puts on every product, and of course guaranteed for life.

On Friday, December 11th, from 11am until 7pm Entermodal will be having a sample
sale at Workroom719, where prototypes will be on sale with generous
markdowns.  At the sale expect to see a variety of bags and accessories
