Forging a Leaf

Hand Forged Leaves and Letter Opener
This is my husband hand forging leaves out of rods of steel. He has made them from large to very small. The small ones have been made into earrings. Medium leaves are made into key chains and necklaces and the larger leaves are for home decor. The letter opener was his first project. He is just getting going in this hobby. I can't wait to see the projects he makes in the spring. Since this is a coal forge and not propane, he needs to be outside. The middle of the winter in upstate NY is not a good time for him to do this hobby.
