Product Description

Filigree is a delicate kind of jewelry metalwork, usually of silver, made with twisted threads that have been soldered together on to the surface of an object of the same metal and arranged in artistic motifs. It often suggests lace and/or fretted scrollwork, and remains popular in traditional, antique Croatian jewelry stores. Most of the Croatian filigree jewelry found in Croatia today is either an antique or made by 3rd generation family jewelers who still use the older tools. Though filigree has become a special branch of jewelry in modern times, it was historically part of the ordinary, daily work of the jeweler.

There are very few jewelers left in Croatia who do this very tedious and intense work by hand and much of what is sold as “filigree” nowadays is jewelry that has been machine made. We were extremely lucky in Croatia this year to meet up with a jeweler who was retiring and selling his own antique, handmade FILIGREE earrings at low prices. We are passing along the savings to you, our customers, in the hopes that you will want to own a little piece of Croatian history in order to help keep our beautiful traditions alive!

This stunning Croatian Filigree Bracelet is 8.0 inches in length (there is no extender) and it features absolutely beautiful workmanship linked together featuring BOTUNI! The bracelet should fit most wrists.

Silver Legacies: The Making of Croatian Filigree Jewelry (04:37)
The fiery birth of a pair of silver filigree earrings and the process of how to make jewelry by hand using traditional techniques is profiled in this episode of Destinations with Shawn & Tricia. Embedded in the 1,700-year-old walls of Diocletian's Palace in Split, Croatia, this small jewelry store is still using a traditional jewelry-making technique passed down for generations. Viktor and Flora Čivljak, the owners of Filigran Split, were kind enough to allow Tricia and me to chronicle the making of a pair of silver filigree earrings over the course of 4 hours. Needless to say, it was a true pleasure to watch a master craftsman at work. ______ Subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=shawnpmitchell Connect with me: https://shawnpmitchell.com https://instagram.com/shawnpmitchell/ https://pinterest.com/shawnpmitchell/ https://twitter.com/shawnpmitchell/ https://linkedin.com/in/-shawnpmitchell-/ Check out Tricia’s website: https://triciaannemitchell.com Follow Tricia on: https://instagram.com/triciaamitchell https://twitter.com/triciaamitchell https://facebook.com/triciaamitchell https://linkedin.com/in/triciabolyardmitchell A special thank you to Filigran Split for allowing us to film this extraordinary event: http://filigransplit.wordpress.com ______ #Split #Croatia #Filigree #Jewelry #Travel #Vacation #Holiday
