Wrought Collection

 

It is very common for the word wrought to be paired with iron. It appears that my work may be wrought iron, since it is often blackened and inspired by wrought iron. However, by seeing the definitions below, it appears that wrought applies not only to iron, but many materials (and even essays). My purpose is to evoke the beauty of wrought iron, but to express that the jewelry is wrought with my hammer. I think that definitions 1, 2, and 4 definitely apply, and I hope that definition 5 also applies.
