About this Piece

Chip Inlay

Chip inlay is a jewellery technique whereby cavities are carved into silver and filled with a mixture of crushed natural stone; typically turquoise, coral or lapis and an epoxy resin. Once the resin has cooled and hardened, it is polished smooth. The technique is popular in both Mexican and Native American jewellery - the colour often vibrant and the layers of crushed stone give a nice depth.
