What Your Favorite Jewelry-Making Tool Reveals About You

I admit it. I’m one of those people — the ones who click on every test, survey, and article on Facebook that profess to tell you all about your personality. I love ‘em. So it occurred to me that your favorite jewelry-making tools could probably tell a lot about your personality. So here is my decidedly un-scientific, tongue-in-cheek look at what your favorite jewelry-making tool might reveal.

Stamps

Well, let’s be honest. You’re a bit of an egotist. You like to make it all about you and put your . . . yes . . . stamp on everything. But you are definitely an individual and very unique.
