Rustic Leather and Bronze Choker
Wired Vine by Linda Larsen
Forging is a process of working metal to a finished shape by hammering. It’s considered a “hot” process because the metal must be annealed to keep it from getting brittle. Annealing requires that you heat the metal to a dull red with a torch and then quench it in cool water when the redness disappears. This has to be done as you move the metal into shape as it becomes “work hardened” and brittle. For this heavy-gauge wire, you will need a pretty hot torch such as MAPP gas from the hardware store.
