Repousse is an ancient technique that transforms a flat piece of metal into a three dimensional form. This is repousse in aluminum riveted to a steel backing so that it can be worn as a belt buckle. The technique is often used in jewelry but was also used by blacksmiths to make armor, decoration on vessels and as part of decorative metalwork in general.
My work is all one of a kind. I would like it to be a unique expression for the wearer.
The material is durable and ages well, so it will look better with wear.
