Metal what?! or What is Metalsmithing?

What is Metalsmithing….

Jewelers often refer to their craft as metalsmithing, and many universities offer degree programs in metalsmithing, jewelry, enameling and blacksmithing under the auspices of their fine arts programs. (excerpts taken from Wikipedia.org)

metalsmith or simply smith is a craftsman fashioning tools or works of art out of various metals.

As an English suffix-smith connotes a meaning of specialized craftsmen — for example, wordsmithand tunesmith are nouns synonymous with writer or songwriter, respectively.

Types of metalsmiths:

My fields of interest/studies: Silversmith, Pewtersmith, Goldsmith, Coppersmith, Brassfounder, Blacksmith.
