There have been four bracelets sitting here ‘almost ready’ for longer than I like to think about – now I am very happy to be able to share them with you this ‘Filigree Friday’ – complete, polished and ready to wear.
Here you can see the leaf sections of the bracelets being soldered into place – we use silver powder mixed with borax for all of our soldering.
The next step involves these segments or frames being filled with a filigree pattern.
The patterns that we create are handrolled from a fine silver wire, this 4mm wire is carefully rolled or twisted to produce a finished design that will both look fabulous and compliment the frame work.
This photo shows a few steps down the line – now each section of the bracelet has been filled with a distinctive filigree pattern and this must be gently soldered into place, careful to catch each piece of the pattern.
Now the pieces will be joint together – alternating leaves and flowers to create a fabulous finished piece.
Here we are using fire to clean the oxidised silver before we can give it a final polish.
And finally the finished bracelet being worn.
The bracelet is available on our website for €110 –
Please ask if you have any questions about our work, we would love to hear from you.
