Cow: made in SPAIN/and DAMASCENE

In our Cow album we have signed "made in Spain" pieces, unsigned, and other DAMASCENE jewelry which may be Oriental Damascene and also some that are simply Damascene style..

"Pieces of real gold and silver are inlaid *into* the surface of the metal that receives them, and then the base metal field that received the inlaid gold and silver is blackened. In Spain, however, this costly and labor-intensive process has been simulated with damascene *style* (faux damascene) jewelry..the gold and silver-tone areas are raised *above* the black field. These pieces are stamped from metal with the design done in relief. Then the raised areas re plated in gold-tone and silver-tone and the lower areas are enameled black. This is not damascene, but it is meant to look like it. Damascene is an ancient art form. This technique of metal working has spread throughout the world. The two places which use this art form to make jewelry today are Spain and Japan. In Spain both authentic damascene and imitation damascene are made. Japanese damascene is distinguishable from Spanish damascene primarily by its design. The motifs shown in the work are characteristically Japanese, featuring scenes of Mt. Fuji, plum blossoms, and Asian style birds and flowers. The designs of the jewelry are often Asian, as well, with links shaped like cherry blossoms or characteristic pendant pieces" Contributed by Cheri Van Hoover
