Though until the past few days I've never thought seriously about getting an apron. I usually don't mind wiping my hands on my pants, or whatever I'm wearing. I mean, jewelry making is dirty and I don't wear anything 'good' to work in anyway. Now that it is hot though - my studio is extraordinarily hot and I find myself wearing as little as possible - most of the time a little dress that is cool, but has no pockets. And for a variety of reasons, I am thinking a nice little apron will be perfect. I can wipe dirty stuff all over it and maybe save some of my real clothes from getting incredibly dirty. It has to have pockets - at least one. i don't really know what for, but too often i need something. Also - it has to be an ipod holder. I have a clip on my ipod case, so it can clip to the top of the band if needed - but the arm band holster is just too hot to be strapped on my arm in the 95+ degree heat of my studio. talk about uncomfortable, ugh.
so my qualifications:
*nice colors, something fun that will make me happy
*something thin enough to not be too hot and bulky
*at least one pocket
*not too long - again - we don't want something that will add extra heat
*pliable as I will probably be using it to wipe out the insides of rings after i've sanded them, that sort of thing...
*but - durable enough to deal w/ the dirt of the studio...
so far - here are my favorites (oh and of course, i'm sure you'll notice the blue and green theme - they ARE my colors after all :)
Do you have a favorite? If you know me... does one seem to scream "This is perfect for Beth"? Do you have an apron that you wear and love?
Some people might think that I am indecisive. I know differently - I just like to think it through and find the 'perfect' one for me. Weigh all my options etc. Which is kind of strange considering there are plenty things in life I just do w/o thinking! Hm, I guess when it comes to spending money though - that is what makes me stop and think. And I think all of these are incredibly reasonable priced - so that doesn't actually factor in to my decision at all.
