Balliet Fine Jewelry

Workshop Tour

I’ve been waiting to write a post about Geoff’s workshop until it was nice and clean, but I don’t think that will happen any time soon. The shop is almost completely set up, though we are still working on a way to store inventory, supplies, and shipping materials. We’ll also be adding pegboard behind Geoff’s bench as extra storage for tools.
