Measuring Up

I'm an antique ruleraholic. If I see an old ruler for sale, I get an excited chill up my spine - and I buy it. So I've decided to put my ruler collection to good use. I sliced up one of my favorites and used a wood stain to match the sawed edges to the aged wood. Using the smallest drill bit I could find, I fastened hardware to make these delicate necklaces. I plan on gifting one to my friend Heather, a middle school math teacher with a passion for algebra. I can see her in the front of the class, with a ruler necklace laying atop a worn wool sweater and a piece of chalk in her hand. I still need to add these necklaces to my website, so email me with inquiries in the meantime.
