ITSA Studio is not only my working studio, (Barbetta Lockart Contemporary Art), but it also houses all the wonderful treasures found on my itsastudio.com site. I carry surface design supplies, jewelry supplies, beads, and wonderful world market items. Always a bead lover, always a lover and appreciator of all the world’s cultures, and always a creative sort, I put all those interests together and opened a bead shop many years ago. Closing the shop to get back into my own studio did not change any of that, hence ITSA Studio was created. Although it is online, I welcome visitors to the studio so they can browse through all the treasures and be dazzled.
Mission: As artists we all need wonderful items for inspiration, great supplies to work with, and interesting ‘stuff’, as well as the occasional treat for ourselves. We also sometimes need information from someone familiar with the products/items. ITSA Studio offers all that and more, including cups of tea, good music…and classes.
Location: Sacramento, California, USA
Brick and Mortar: ITSA Studio is located at 4330 24th Street, #2, Sacramento, California, 95822 USA. Visitors are very welcome at the studio, whether they want to shop art supplies, beads, or world treasures, discuss techniques, or just have a leisurely visit discussing art and fiber. A cup of tea is always ready for you, but I ask that you contact me through my website(s) to make an appointment since I don’t have regular ‘retail’ hours.
