According to the novica.com website, "To create this purse, the silver alloy is poured into a terracotta container. When the silver has set, the artisan pounds it into a sheet and cuts it into the desired shape. A coat of oil and pitch mixture is applied to a wooden surface before setting the silver sheet to be engraved with chisels and nails. Once engraved, the piece is heated to remove the pitch and placed into a bath of boiling acid to rinse out the impurities. Then the silversmith shapes solid strings into various shapes, and solders them into the desired design. Once completed, the piece is washed in tamarind solution and rinsed with water. Finally, it is filed with a small brass brush and polished."
