Filigree – from the Latin “filum” meaning thread and “granum” meaning seed.
Filigree is the art of curling, twisting and plaiting fine threads of precious metals into intricate designs joined by soldering into a delicate tracery.
Beautiful patterns can be designed in a lacy, openwork pattern, or can be set into a metal framework, or soldered to a metal base.
Filigree has a rich history, having originated in the ancient world and spread by trade and travelers throughout many cultures, each developing their own style and motifs.
