I would like to introduce you to a young woman who is a filigree artist from the Mediterranean island of Malta. I have often posted about Maltese filigree because it is an art form which I have especially at heart. I became even more appreciative of its finesse and beauty after spending three years studying about its history and also attended a workshop to try my hand at making some filigree myself.
As you can see from these images, sterling silver filigree can be adapted to be used for a wide variety of articles and not only for making jewellery.
And here is the giveaway to start off FairyFiligree's 2nd year of Blogging.
