Layer upon layer of intricate filigree work woven together to form a fabulous almost flower shape pair of dangling earrings topped and embellished with a gorgeous luminescent dark blue Lapis stone.
Emulated in gold plated silver filigree to resemble flowers from nature.
Technique: Handmade Filigree. 0.27mm Silver strands are coiled together creating an intricate and beautiful pattern and then electroplated in gold. The ancient art of Chinese filigree is much more labour intensive than European cast designs but the effort is repaid by the delicate brilliance of the myriad strands reflecting light in fine patterns. Filigree is part of China’s “intangible cultural heritage”, according to UNESCO. Filigree art originated in the Warring States Period in China (475-221 BC). The art still survives in a few small workshops in China. It's our mission to grow and internationalise the fine art of handmade filigree.

Most filigree is cast into a mould. Even so-called "handcrafted" filigree is often made in this way. But real handcrafted filigree is made by spinning long, thin strands of gold (Imperial style) or silver (southern Chinese style) and then coiling it by hand into beautiful patterns. Our brand stands for quality and genuine craftsmanship, and our pieces tend to be very labour intensive.
