This is a beautiful Amber Silver Pendant. Tibetan jewelry pieces are made with technique of Repoussé and chasing on silver, brass and copper. Repoussé is a metalworking technique which is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side of metal sheet. While Repoussé is used to work on the reverse of the metal to form a raised design on the front, chasing is used to refine the design on the front of the work by sinking the metal. The motifs and designs are created by hammering on the metal sheet after putting the resin and wax underneath. Chasing is the opposite technique to repoussé, and the two are used in conjunction to create a finished piece such as beads, pendants, bracelets, earrings and necklaces. This method is beautiful on the front as well as the back. Copal is the oldest known substitute for amber, often referred to as "immature amber". Copal is tree resin (not tree sap!) that has not gone through the fossilization process that makes amber what it is today. Experts can't agree about how old Copal has to be before it becomes amber (it depends on geological, botanical and chemical transformations), but general consensus seems to be that Copal is usually less than 100,000 years old, but sometimes can be as young as 1000 years old. A wonderful gift for the holiday season.
