Hand-hammering is the technique that the house is most famous for and the dint of small hammers echoes around the workshop as repeated strikes of the rounded head creates a rich pattern of soft indentations as favoured by the Ancient Greek goldsmiths. Granulation is the skill of placing small beads onto surfaces to create intricate highly textured patterns and brought up to date in collections such as Glory of Byzantium. Even older is filigree work, which uses fine threads of gold and grains to create light as lace open-work jewels or to build up elaborate patterns on a surface.
