Pewter was originally used at the beginning of the Bronze Age in the Near East. The earliest piece of pewter was from an Egyptian tomb - around 1450 BC.
Pewter Embossing or Repousse is an ancient art form that has withstood the test of time and is now gaining popularity once again.
It is an amazing medium to work with as it can be manipulated and used in so many different ways.
