FORGING.


    FORGING is a method of deforming metal with a hammer on an anvil.
                In the case of Sterling Silver and the Karat Golds, this
                must be done COLD!  If a hot forging is attempted the
                precious metals will just crumble.  In their PURE form
                Silver and Gold will allow HOT forging, but there is no
                benefit to be gained.
