This is truly an elite kind of art that was first invented in Egypt, way back, and is practiced by very few people. It is called ‘Repousse’ and it is a tedious metal forming process that takes a lot of heat and a lot of hammering.
The metal has to be hammered carefully, so as not to break through the thinning sheet of gold, silver or platinum.
It is time and labor intensive and very expensive, if the item is very elaborate. Contact me if you are interested in having your Life Crest Story shaped into one of these special pieces. You wont have many people saying, “Oh I have one of those at home somewhere”.
