I'm an 11-year-old boy. I like crafting things, and I'm homeschooled.
One day my dad brought home some smashed pennies from the railroad track where he was working that day. Then I got the idea, "Why don't I smash some coins?" So I smashed a gold dollar and my mom liked it. She asked me to make her a necklace. And that's how I got into making jewelry.
I smash the coins in our basement. Dad brought home an angle iron and we bolted it onto a log so I could smash coins on top of it, and I use my dad's drill to make holes in the coins. That's where I work pretty much.
My mom helps me hook the jump rings on to the chains and helps me to get it looking right.
If you don't find what you want, I can try to make it for you!
