Filigree wife!

Today I decided to help with some of our filigree work;

My mission was to fill some frames that Doka had previously soldered together;

With some of these filigree swirls that Doka had all prepared – easy?

Not so easy for me! The key is to use a pair of tweezers to pinch the each end of the swirl into a point so the pieces will fit into the pointed framework.    I assumed this would be easy enough and found that pinching the right shape and fitting the swirls into the frames was very fiddly and the silver swirls often pinged out of place or were a little to large to place easily in the frames.

Starfish frames filled by filigree wife.

This work is for some new starfish earrings;

      Each swirl is created about the right size to fit snuggly into the frame – that is the biggest part of the struggle for me…. I kept wanting to snip little bits of so they would fit easier!!
