Brass & Silver Filigree

Brass & Silver Filigree


Delicate brass filigree wires are intricately wound to make products that are given a gold or silver coating to enhance their appeal. The brass filigree craft originated with the use of coral and turquoise stones that were combined with intricate filigree work to make jewellery. Gradually, this work was extended into the crafting of other products, including pillboxes and larger containers. Nowadays, along with traditional items, very fine and delicate Christmas tree ornaments are being made for the export market. Other decorative items such as birds and animals are also being hand-crafted in the same style.
