Tools on Tuesday

A few weeks ago, while stirring Thanksgiving cranberry sauce, I realized how attached I am to the wooden spoon I was using.

I have strong feelings about many of the tools that I use daily. As a maker, these tools are almost as meaningful to me as the things I make.

I shared my wooden spoon on Facebook and it seemed that everyone had a story, so I created #toolsontuesday to keep up the practice of sharing stories about the tools we use. 

Every Tuesday, I'll share one of my favorite tools. I hope you'll share yours in the comments — it feels good to honor these everyday objects.

This week I'm starting with my jewelry tools. They're not particularly fancy, and some of them are beaten up, but I use them to make every single piece of jewelry. They feel right in my hands and I know what they'll do for me.
