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.
