My daughter, who just turned 8, loves to hang with me while I'm making jewelry. Which I love, of course.
She has learned a lot about jewelry and metals and stones, and she is really getting into working with wire. I just love it since wire is not as much my thing, but I love to see her develop her own passion for something.
It is amazing to me how creative an 8 year old can be - they have no constraints or preconceived ideas about trends or fashion, and the ideas she comes up with reflect her own personality. I think some of these will make great clasps or be part of a very cool chain...we'll see!!
