Making Art

May 17, 2016

 I thought that it could be interesting to show you how it works to produce filigree jewels.. so just to begin, you have to draw your idea.. or as i do, to have it enough clear in your mind! Then to create the filigree pieces you begin with the wire; which can be purchased, but I make my own. I twist flat Sterling Silver wire, hammer it and anneal for malleability. When I finished and I have the wires ready, I shape them making framework that I fill with other curled wires. The handformed components are then set up to be soldered. Each piece is carefully planned, placed and soldered. The pieces are then handfinished and poolished. I show you some of this in two videos. Hope you will envoy!
