Spanish Gold Inlay

Was: Jeweler’s former lives


This reminded me -- I saw metalsmiths working in Spain, doing the
gold inlay onto a black background. What is that black stuff? 

the black stuff is steel and I used to hang out in Toledo, too,
watching them inset the gold wires and asking questions. It was fun
to watch several different stages of the work in progress.
