Repoussé is a traditional Navajo jewelry making technique. In repoussé, the metal is softened and hammered by hand from the reverse side, to create the low-relief pattern on the front side of the piece. Chasing works in conjunction with repoussé techniques, working on the opposite or front side of the piece to sink the metal in or create a groove or channel in the metal.
