Filigree jewelry artists across the globe unite to bring you the highest quality jewelry art using filigree, to promote "creative filigree design" through cooperation... just like the impressionists did to get their way of art out to the world. Filigree is a jewel work of a delicate kind made with twisted threads usually of gold and silver. Though filigree has become a special branch of jewel work in modern times, it was anciently part of the ordinary work of the jeweler. Even before the 1800s the French and Italians used wire to wrap into intricate designs known as filigree. Filigree has been used in jewelry making and ornamentation throughout time by the Greeks, Egyptians, Romans, French, Etruscans and many more civilizations and time periods. Our goal is to promote jewelry designers who use filigree in their original works and who display all forms of good character and outstanding business practices. If you are a filigree designer that has outstanding qualities of sharing, encouragement, honest business practices and a sincere desire for this design movement to go forward... then please join us by visiting our Etsy team.
