Ancient jewelry making technique using cuttlebone molds - Artisan jeweller, Eftihios Tsivourakis, demonstrates the ancient technique of mould-making using cuttlefish bone. He uses this technique to make a sterling silver pendant, an approximately 2/3 replica tetradrachm (coin) of Athens, c. 449 - 413 BCE. This demonstration took place in Eftihios' jewellery shop, Batsi Gold, on the Greek Aegean island of Andros, in October 2013.
Eftihios kindly demonstrated this technique to members of the Zagora Archaeological Project (including Powerhouse Museum partners) who were living in Batsi participating in the project. http://www.powerhousemuseum.com/zagora
