Chasing and repousse are methods of embellishing metal objects that have been in use for millennia. With the use of punches and hammers, a wide range of items from delicate jewellery, such as earrings, to pieces of monumental sculpture can be adorned using these techniques. The book provides clear and practical instructions that will be of use to both beginners and the more practised craftsperson. Beautifully illustrated, and filled with step by step photographic sequences, this book is a wonderful exploration of how this method can be used by the modern day jeweller or metalsmith.
