Navajo Beauty Repousse' Sterl Silver Large Heavily Detailed Barrette Hand Made
This listing is for one super nice barrette. It is 4″ long and 1 1/8″ wide at the widest point. 22 grms in weight. This is a wonderful example of repousse silver. There are may too many details to list so you can study the pictures to see all the beautiful stamping and repousse’ work. The clasp to this is marked Made in France and is held to the barrette by wires securing it tightly. The clasp is in tight good working order. This is not hallmarked sterling but has been tested to be sterling. This was left unsigned by the artist but the work is just beautiful. I have zoomed in on different parts of the barrette so you can see all the detailed work throughout! This should last a good long time and would be a fine ornament for your hair! While repouss√© 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 term chasing is derived from the noun “chase”, which refers to a groove, furrow, channel or indentation. The adjectival form is “chased work”. While this is tedious work, the result is just stunning. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. ONLY Respectable Offers will be considered.
