Incorporating the ancient techniques and styles of vanished civilizations, filigree is without a doubt one of the oldest and the most beautiful art forms known to the human race.
What Is Filigree: Filigree is a jewel work of a delicate nature made with twisted threads usually of gold and silver or stitching of the same curvy substance.
