The wonderful thing about studio storage, or any other storage for that matter, is that the more unusual and creative the better! For example, the crystal pitcher shown above belonged to my Grandmother Bailey and it’s the ideal solution for holding taller items.

I found this mannequin in a thrift shop and it’s perfect for modeling jewelry and handbags.

I can’t remember where we found this small chalkboard cabinet, but it sits on the back of my desk and is great for hiding things and keeping track of orders.

Don’t forget mismatched bowls! They’re ideal for holding beads, buttons, etc.

My bookshelves are lined with canning jars which hold buttons, paint, paintbrushes, etc.

Call me old fashioned, but nothing surpasses a paper Moleskine planner.
It’s filled each week with daily to-do lists as well as notes and sketches.
I have another one with plain pages for more detailed sketches and handbag designs.

Be sure to look around your house for unused dishes and glassware as well as trays, baskets,
and bookshelves. Additional resources include thrift shops and garage sales.
