I found these really great tool charm that actually move! I thought they were perfect for steampunking! First, a little bit of history: the Gries Reproducer Corporation operated out of New York and from the 1950s to 1960s ran giveaways of tool charms (like these) in Cracker Jacks! Pretty neat, huh? 1950 1 Collage 1950 2 Collage1950 3 CollageThe pliers are perhaps my favorite since I do work with them often myself. I made a cute pair of earrings for my mom & I. 1950 4 Collage
