We had 2 kg hammers and the fire with forging coal is really hot. You can easy burn your fingers. Have avoided that luckily.

Oh weh, cold forging. There is a course in cold forging steel helmets. Helmet in Viking style for example. That is worse than forging.

In making earrings, silver work might be useful for own designs.

I don't have enough time for what I am interested in. Sigh, better not adding silver forging.

Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace.
