Manufacturing Filigree through fine wires of silver and gold

The peculiar technique used in the filigree manufacturing process entails the drawing of the precious materials, gold and silver, into very fine wires, which are then twisted and waived together to create patterns that look like the arabesque.

The gold or silver manufacturer makes the alloy mixing the right quantity of the material;he welds, cooks and re-cooks the material at the proper time to make it more malleable; he knows how to model the object giving shape and lightness to an enormous variety of products. 

The great value of the hand-made filigree handicrafts comes from the patient, detailed and over-scrupulous manufacturing process hidden behind every single item.
