I am so excited about the necklace I'm working on today. I love it. I have a new set of ergonomic tools coming so I can work without my hands hurting. I'm still using tools my dad gave me when I was little and he worked at Builders Emporium (olden days Home Depot). The rubber handles have cracked and some don't function at all anymore. I guess hardware store pliers etc. weren't made for 30+ years of hard labor. I'll keep them though. They hold a lot of memories.
