I'll let Jonathan explain a little bit about himself and what he does...
"Hi! I'm Jonathan. 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. That's where I work pretty much. Then my dad drills holes in the coins, and my mom makes the jewelry. Together, she and I run the business."
The Giveaway: So, here's the deal. All you have to do is leave a comment below and you will be entered to win ONE of the three lovely pieces shown above (your choice). Please note that your item will not look exactly, exactly the same because each coin has unique hammer marks and the clasps may be slightly different. Please only one entry per household. Also, if you comment anonymously, please leave me a name or initial so I can identify you if you win. I will randomly draw a winner sometime this Friday.
There's more! Until January 28th, if you make a purchase over at Smashing for Pretty and enter "thyhand" in the comment section of your order you'll receive 10% off the cost of the jewelry!
Thank you, Jonathan, and happy smashing!!
