SILVER WORKING TECHNIQUES



Silver cutout work. First the silversmith drills a small hole in the metal and then inserts a saw blade thru the hole. He then carefully cuts out the design.
This skill requires a lot of patience and practice to get it right.


Cutout work is a relatively recent development in the ancient art of silversmithing and attained
most of its popularity in the late 1890's.
