For doing what did Telchar make his fame Question Smilie
(Heya MelliotSandybanksWaving Hello Smilie Good to see you around , it's been a while Smile Smilie )
He made Narsil, the swords that later was remade as Andúril used by Aragorn .
Or was it for the knife angrist which cut a silmaril from the crown of morgoth?
Actually, Telchar made both of them and he made his name as a Smith. I assume the made other magnificent weapons in his time, but Narsil and Angrist are the only known ones to have come to our attention after so long a time. I'll give both Mellon and Thorin a pretty bauble each. Happy Elf Smilie

'A man so bent with age that he seemed almost a dwarf; but his white hair was long and thick and fell in great braids from beneath a thin golden circlet set upon his brow.' To whom does this description apply Question Smilie
PS: The Children Of Hurin also states that the Dragon Helm of Dor Lomin was made by Telchar, and the dragon of gold was based on Glauraung.

The helm of Hador was given into Thingol's hands...It was wrought by Telchar, the smith of Nogrod,...Upon its crest was set in defiance a gilded image of Glauraung the dragon; for it had been made soon after he first issued from the gates of Morgoth.
Etharion has the answer and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Why did the Green-elves of Ossiriand object to the presence of Men in their land Question Smilie

I didn't remember that Telchar also made the Dragon Helm of Dor-Lómin, but that makes more sense than Robert Foster who just said it was made by Dwarves. I couldn't find anything in the Silmarillion about its maker; however I found its full description on page 80-81 of the Ballantine edition of Unfinished Tales. There it does give Telchar as the Helm's maker and Foster's mistake was probably caused by it having 'a visor (after the manner of those that the Dwarves used in their forges for the shielding of their eyes) and the face of one that wore it struck fear into the hearts of all beholders, but was itself guarded from dart and fire.' It goes on to tell of the dragon crest in the image of Glaurung.....
Because they were opposed to animal hunting and forest destruction - a well-know human deed - These elves were soooo ecological (they were not called green-elves for a random reason ...)
You got it Eädollon; and the pretty bauble too. Happy Elf Smilie

Sams song in mordor in the tower
