How about stamped sterling silver bracelets? Stamp their
initials or series of story pictures, then hammer into shape
around a wood pole. Since silver is this season’s jewelry craze,
Mom will love this gift from her son, or her son will prize it as
a memory of this adventure. Maybe someone else has a better idea
for the type of metal you choose for kids.
Check with your craft store, lapidary or leather or bead store
for supplies, including metal strips, stamps and mallets (you may
have this last one).
Matching earrings in strips and slides or pendants for necklaces
can also get you the most raves for the shortest attention span.
For the mini-moguls who have no interest in sissy hand work,
explain how much (US$300-11,000) Steven Lagos gets for his silver
designs. (Show me the MONEY–J. McQuirre)
