1″ x 2″, found objects

I love tools. and I love hardware.  As a kid I would spend hours and hours looking through the little bins at the hardware store down the street from my house, comparing sizes and imagining what it could become.  But sadly, I’m still not taken seriously when I walk into most hardware stores. As a woman I need to prove to the men who seem to haunt the isles that I do indeed have business there and that I don’t need to be condescended to.  This pendant will be a hardware-full shield against the sexism that’s still rampant in construction, art and manufacturing.  Beautiful and tough.
