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.

Filigree is a beautiful and ancient, there are no machines to duplicate it. This is also a great way to learn about heat control with the torch!

        Hello Caroline,
        I am happy to hear from you too :))
        Sorry, I just realized I have your reply message, I do not open the website often.. The weekends in August are a very busy time for me, but I I am going to look into my family summer plans and will try to fit this workshop into it. I also forwarded your message to my friend.
        All best
        Polina
