RAISING.


                Raising is a method of shrinking sheet metal in order to
                        form hollow shapes.  For instance:  a bowl, or a
                        jug may be raised from flat sheet metal in one
                        single   piece.    During  the  process  the  metal
                        actually thickens.

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.
