Crafting Tools

I really did caught the blog hopping bug! I just came from "Tools Are For Women Too" blog and I was drifted back to memory lane. I remembered the day when my hubby first saw my arts & crafts paraphernalia box. He was surprised that I have these little pliers, glue gun, glue sticks and other tools. I had them because at one point, I really wanted to make some costume jewelry pieces to accessorize my office uniforms. But work did not really gave me time to craft (I was so busy that I have to do overtime work on Saturdays). Then I met my husband, got married, resigned from my busy working girl life and moved to his hometown in the countryside. I have always loved country style decors, so I was very excited to do some crafting! Anyway, after my hubby saw my tools and interest in making craft projects, he taught me how to use an electric drill, so that when he is away at work and I need to hang some of my projects, I'll know how to do it. He also taught me how to work with hinges and cutting metals. Sometimes, when I'm working with my tools, I also get to think that they may look like tools for men, but they are made for crafty women too! I am actually wishing to have those colored pink tools. It's so girly girly!

Yesterday, I have put those little tools to work again (hmmm... I think my long nose pliers need to rest and be replaced now). I made an amethyst colored necklace to wear with my plain purple t-shirt. The necklace is made of glass beads, metal spacers in antique gold, delica beads and the clasp is a heart & arrow toggle lock in antique gold. Here's a picture!
