Default Mother day twisted ring. (4 hand work with my 2.5 years old son)

I'm in a bad mood and don't work at all in the workshop from two month but i gave a try to obtain motivation to make something for the motherday (end of may).

I used silversterling wire (1.3mm) and work with my 2.5 year old son
He cut the wire with the cutting plier.
We straightened the wire with a little hammer and small anvil. (that is a part of job he enjoyed ).
A vice plier, a vice and a screw gun. He put everything in place (with my help) and it's him who pressed the trigger and twisted the metal.
After that we used a ring mandrel and he shapped the ring; i marked the point to cut the first wire, he cut, the second, the three, the fourth. It ok.
I continued the work for brazing (2.5 year old is a bit young for torch ). I sanded, and buffered
I'm happy of the result. And i'm sure that the mummy with enjoy that 4 hand work ppuie sur la détente . Cela tourne, cela tourne, stop. on a une belle torsade.
