Bill' toolbox at Studio J in Murfreesboro, TEnnessee

After retirement, I remodeled the horse barn into a workshop/studio and began making jewelry. Later Elesa started working with me and teaching wire wrapping classes which led us to publish our book. I also helped Claire set up her studio and then got Brenda started by selecting some tools or making them for all to have and use in their studios. Later Elesa moved to Huntsville and I started teaching advanced level classes in jewelry making for our gem and mineral society. I have moved my woodworking equipment into the barn to make more space available in the studio so I can make "Tools You didn't think you needed" for wire wrappers, jewelry makers, cold connections projects and lapidary.
This book includes special tools made for wire wrapping and since then I have made more than twenty five other very useful time saving tools that are modifications of available tools or tools I have made in the shop.
Hope you will share this with your friends and send me you comments.
