The Andean people were skilled in the use of gold, silver and copper, using these metals for tools as well as jewelry. The most beautiful gold of the Andes region came from the centers of Chimú, Chanchan and Ika, and especially the first, during the Tiahuanaco and Inca periiods. Andean people's techniques were very advanced; apart from the gold beating and repoussé work; they knew how to weld and understood the lost wax process, alloys and copper gilding.
