Lost Gold, Found
Gold is a dominant theme in Central American history, and Panama’s pre-Columbian metals rival those of anywhere else in the world. The founders of Reprosa, a Panama City metal workshop, decided that rather than mourn the loss of traditional goldsmithing techniques, they’d revive them. Now, visitors can tour the factory to witness gold and silver jewelry being created using the “lost wax” technique, and even attempt the goldsmithing method that so mesmerized conquistadors centuries ago.
