Filigree is the most delicate technique that is used to work precious metals, usually of gold and silver. It is an age-old and detailed jewellery expression in which skilled artisans painstakingly solder tiny beads and twisted threads to create striking artistic motifs, suggesting often an exquisite and intricate lace-like pattern. The fine wire elements are soldered together to create small and rich accessories, usually jewellery pieces such as rings and necklaces.
