(Occupations) Permanent link


Can you explain the what the occupation of a "Brightsmith" was?


A "Brightsmith" is a name for someone who works shaping bright metals.  For instance a "Brightsmith" works with brass, tin and copper metals.  This same occupation can be referred to by the specific metal such as a Tinsmith, Coppersmith, etc.
