My Five Fave Tools
The lovely Lisa of Sandytoesjewelry had a great idea for anyone who's interested to write a post with photos of their Five Fave Tools. I snapped some shots of mine tonight and I look forward to seeing all of yours soon.
TOOL THE FIRST: My trusty torch. Shall I write an ode to my torch?
Oh fire so fair, kept away from my hair
you're perfectly safe as I hunch in my lair
creating true treasures, my favorite things
when I hold onto you my jeweler's heart sings....
TOOL THE SECOND: My sad little saw
See saw, marjorie daw
Johnny shall have a new master
I hate every moment I spend with you saw
Somehow I must learn to saw faster
TOOL THE THIRD: My ball peen hammer
My whole family hates when I hammer
As soon as I start they all clamor
Shut up they all cry
Shut up I reply
I'm busy creating my glamor!
TOOL THE FOURTH: My Bezeling Tools
Bezeling tools, sweet bezeling tools,
You help me to set all my favorite jewels
And if sometimes you slip and ruin my stone
Your good deeds will always your bad ones atone.
TOOL THE FIFTH: My Favorite Pliers
Twas wires and pliers that started all this,
The urge to give something shiny a twist,
To make of the metal just what I wished,
that led me to go from pliered to fired.
So that is the skinny my friends as they say,
And to the poor teacher who reads this one day
I know this whole thing has the rhyme scheme from hell
But I hope that the rest of you will think that it's swell :D
