Today I would like to shed some light on a filigree myth;
Myth – ‘Filigree is so delicate’
While we wouldn’t recommend trying to get an elephant to balance on our work, filigree is surprisingly strong.
It is true that some styles are more delicate than others, but remember our filigree work has been heated and soldered many times to create the final pieces. It is polished using a soft WIRE brush & shake method – which involves shaking each piece with small ball bearings, water & lemon dish washing liquid.
FACT: Filigree is strong
We would love to hear from any of you who own some filigree jewellery, do you think it is delicate or strong?
Delicate to look at, strong to hold, wear and love.
Please let us know if you have any questions about our filigree work and remember you can see our finished work here, www.sebasilver.com
