Shopping vs. making tools

If you know me you are most probably aware that I’d rather go shopping for tools than clothes or shoes. I feel like a kid in a candy store when I’m surrounded by jewelry workshop supplies but the wisest piece of advice I’ve ever heard this year was to make my own tools. And the most beautiful piece of jewelry I’ve ever seen was made in the 70s with the use of a hammer and a nail… So I try to avoid compulsive shopping for new torches, drills and saws and focus on creative use of what I already have. This years’ fears and lockdown did help in keeping me in the workshop so now I’m a proud owner of a piece of wire without which polishing would be a nightmare, wooden blocks in which I burn out tiny earrings and pendants to hold them better while polishing or hallmarking and many many more. It’s lots of experimenting and fun. I do miss shopping though J
