About the technique:

Filigree is a technique, used in handmade jewelry; which consists of filling with very fine metal threads, generally gold or silver, hollow shapes or figures previously made by the craftsman; that make up complex pieces of jewelry; forming a lace-like pattern. It is a fine and delicate process, a single piece can take weeks or months to make.

As a quality to be highlighted, the filigree jewel is a light piece par excellence. The delicate designs make ornamentation a laborious art. Various forms of wire can be found in the filigree technique such as:round, flat, twisted, spiral, drop-shaped, wrapped and woven. If desired, almost all of these shapes can be hammer flattened or passed through a rolling mill. The size of the wire depends on the degree of coarseness or fineness of the filigree that is desired, depending on the work.
