After a week of rest, it is slowly sinking in: I actually did a whole year worth of blogging in one month (given my regular rythm is a few posts/month).
Still, I do want to come back to how I ended my last post: When you see a Z, can you be sure it’s the last letter of the alphabet?
It depends. In the Swedish alphabet, you still have three more letters to go after Z: å-ä-ö (Danish and Norwegian have them too, but the two last ones written æ and ø). They count as letters of their own (good to know if you need to find them in a dictionary).
Å-ä-ö are unbearable in Swedish. You can not even do the simplest silversmithing without them. See here some key techniques and materials that you would probably encounter even in your very first weekend workshop:
såga – to saw
silverplåt – silver sheet
silvertråd – silver wire
smärgla – to polish (with emery paper)
löda – to solder
glödga – to anneal
A to Z is over, and now also Å, Ä and Ö. Mission completed. Again, thank you all for reading and commenting, and a special thank you for the awards, that I will now start passing on. I look forward to be blogging at a slower pace again.
When I started the A to Z, I knew I had to Abandon studio time in April. Now, whenever I have a free moment, I’ll be back there again, to såga, smärgla and löda.
