Each year, I look forward to the Burton Antique fair in Ohio. This year I noticed a metal carpenters ruler laying in a large bin among other tools. The object was lovely, stamped in beautiful text, heavily rusted, and completely unique. This collection is about that ruler, and the nostalgia that comes along with it. I hope that these pieces bring you memories of your time spent in your workshop, or perhaps in the workshop of a member from your family. Playing with these rulers was part of my experience growing up in my dad's workshop, and I am proud to say these earrings help me remember that part of my life, and how it informed my own art.
