Married metals is creating a pattern in contrasting metals by sawing and fitting together, in a jigsaw pattern like effect. This technique was first perfected by Spanish and Mexican jewellers, and was called "metales cassados". Use it to draw in metal, mixing silver, copper and brass to make images of flowers, birds and more.
