My 9 yr old's First Creation by andrewk1969 My 9 yr old's First Creation by andrewk1969
Now this isn't his first piece, he made a couple 2 and 2 chains before this.
But this one was his design, and started putting it together as soon as I taught him byzantine. The only parental help was putting the stone in. So be kind as he is really excited about this and I plan on linking him in to this post for a ego boost because he tried really hard on the concept and closures.

This is really awesome! I think it is great that you posted your son's work. My daughter is 12 and is just barely getting interested in my jewlery making. I think this piece is really well done and I would never have know it was his first piece. I am not personally familiar with how to make chainmail, but I have viewed a good deal and this looks beautiful!

There's nothing to worry about his ego. Mine on the other hand...

That's amazing.
