More than a Tool Box
This tool box was my first solid step in the creation of 9th Generation. I didn't have a studio, but I finally had access to one. A place where I could experiment and fail and no one was looking over my shoulder to question my next move. I was Free to bring my ideas to life. Slowly I would fill this box with the tools that I would use to build my dream.
The more I was able to explore and create the heavier the box became. My shoulders grew sore with the weight of my small successes.
Now three years later,
I have a studio with so many tools, and beneath my bench is my tool box. A little more worn and no longer filled with jewelry making supplies. Every so often I find my feet propped upon it and I'm tethered to the very first step I took in believing that I was worth investing in.
