Iron Eagle Feathers by Pheil Forges

Blacksmithing terms::

Collared items two pieces of metal held in place with a metal wrap or strap. The collar is decorative in nature but serves the purpose of holding two pieces in place.

Flat spots in scroll work are predominant in machine bent scroll work. It will always have a flat spot on the end where they clamp it before they bend it cold. 

Hand forged work is bent hot over a form or is hand hammered over an anvil and rolled up hot with a hammer, requiring much more skill but producing a more beautiful product
