But the main part still using only hammer and hand tools which keep their product still have Silversmith spirit.
Working best with Hammer and other Hand tools, raw silver material need to soft enough to bend and change shape. So they can't add more material in raw silver (Pure silver is soft and easy to bend and lose their shape). They add only small amount of Copper (about 2%) mix with pure silver (99.98% silver). Adding some Copper to strengthen silver product to keep their silver product shape but can't add more than this because it will make silver too hard which very hard to work by hand tools.
