Filigree designs were in use during ancient civilizations
like Mesopotamia, Egypt and some of the pieces that have been uncovered go back about 5000 years, making filigree one of the oldest forms of jewelry!To create filigree jewelry, the jeweler begins by stretching out the metal until it is a fine thread. These threads of metal are twisted, curled and formed into delicate lacy patterns and designs.These lacy designs are then fused onto the gold, silver or platinum jewelry or fused together to create intricate designs. The other common aspect is to include small metal beads to give the piece more character and add to the design. These separate components are then soldered together to create the piece of jewelry.
