About The Silver Ingot Cuff with Coral and Turquoise Mosaic Inlay

Pattern for mosaic inlay is cut out of top sheet, then sweat soldered to base sheet.  Chisel and file stamps were used to create deep relief boarders along top and bottom of bracelet, which has also been domed from within using a small hammer.

Coral and turquoise are not buried, but can be touched, their true colors seen and appreciated. Process is similar to Santo Domingo overlay only contained.
