¿Que es la orfebrería? What does a goldsmith do?

Del latín auri faber, aquel que es capaz de manipular el oro, la plata y otros metales con sus manos, y crear.

La joyería empieza con el proceso de creación, al fundir los metales. La joya  sea de oro, plata, o de cualquier metal, empieza con el proceso de fundición y vaciado. Cuando el metal esta totalmente liquido, tenemos que vaciarle en una lingoterta.

Vamos a utilizar procesos de : soldar, recocer, engastar, laminar, trefilar, martillar, medir, embutir, limar, lijar, pulir, brillar y más, para hacer una joya.

¿Sabías que un orfebre tiene que hacer todos estos procedimientos para hacer la joya que estas puesta hoy?

From the latin  auri faber, or those who are able to manipulate gold, silver, and other metals with their hands, to create. 

Jewelry making starts by melting a precious metal. 

You will have to do all kinds of procedures like: soldering, cutting, piercing, filing, annealing, forging, picking, drilling, polishing and more, to have a jewel.

Did you know a goldsmith has to do all these procedures to do the jewel you are wearing today?
