Inlay

inlaid necklace

This is similar to the 'married metal' method. A design is saw-pierced from one metal and inlayed into an exactly matching opening in a different metal.

The pieces are soldered together with high temperature solder. As with married metal, the piece must be filed back until dead flat and all solder removed.

It can be coloured with an open flame or left to oxidise naturally. It can also be sealed to preserve the colour.
