Filigree is a handcraft technique that has not yet been industrialized due to the whole process being made (from start to finish) by hand in an uncontrolled environment.
Fine Filigree jewellery is created by melting two metals (Silver, Gold or Copper) resulting in an alloy strong enough to be manipulated into fine strands.
Processes like stretching, twisting and flattening of the metal, give the necessary strength, rigidity and malleability to handcraft beautiful pieces that are continuously showcased all over the world.
