This week's episode kicked off with a home studio tour by Meredith. As an ER nurse, Meredith turns to jewelry making as a way to escape and rejuvenate. She showed us her set up and Anne offered feedback (hint, her supportive husband has gifted her with some amazing tools!). We are still getting a lot of questions about home studio set ups in general so we went back to the basics for a lively discussion on just the top 10 (or 11) items needed. Surprisingly, as we were putting the list together the number one thing we realized that's needed is .... space. Having a space to create, concentrate, and de-stress is more important than ever right now as we're sheltering in place at home. We also took a quick look at 7 new makers in our Black Artists Matter segment. Read on for the full lists for both!

Anne and Ame shared a bit about a few artists that have influenced her while Ame mentioned some new discoveries. We didn't have a lot of time to delve into viewing their work today, but do see the full list on our blog at annevillestudio.com/blog/black-lives-matter-countdown-to-juneteenth-7-great-black-creators-to-follow.
Due to technical issues and being extra blonde, there is no recording of this week's episode.
