Buried in the forest, North of Atlanta is a top-secret wood shop called Forestique where elves make jewelry. Henry Wischusen worked his entire career as a Director of Product Development at a packaging company. You know...that plastic packaging that kids liked better than the toy inside -- because it makes a crackling sound? Or those blister-packs that require minor surgery to get the toys out? Well those are Henry’s designs.
As I wandered through the ultimate man cave woodshop, itching to photograph all of Henry’s cool boy-toys, he informed me that he’d have to kill me if I shared any of his wood secrets.
So while I can’t tell you anything I’ve seen, I do have a entire box of very cool jewelry bestowed upon me in trade for taking photos of real people…in real places…wearing Henry’s beautiful creations.
