Traditional silversmith and goldsmith’s techniques

Since antiquity, metals have been appreciated in Greece, where the metalwork tradition still remains important and has created “schools”, such as those of the Dodecanese, Stemnitsa or loannina. This article deals with three different traditional techniques, one of which refers to the casting of a ring (small object) on a cuttle-fish bone mould. The second one refers to the reproduction of a flat model by using soot, the third one to the mounting of a stone or gem.
