Repousee is a technique in which a metal is shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low-relief on the front.

The Navajos began working with silver in the 19th century, and began making things like buckles, bridles, buttons, rings, canteens, hollow beads, earrings, crescent-shaped pendants (called ‚Äúnajas‚ÄĚ), bracelets, crosses, powder chargers, tobacco canteens, and conchos (for belts).¬† Their silversmithing skills has evolved and changed throughout the years, and in about 1880 Navajo silversmiths started to set turquoise in their silver work.¬† Traditionally, Navajo artists worked with jewelry techniques like repousee and stamp work, but today they explored in other Native American jewelry making techniques like Zuni inlay work and Hopi overlay work.
