Filigree is the most delicate technique used when working with precious metals, usually gold and silver. It is an age-old and detailed jewellery technique in which skilled artisans painstakingly solder tiny beads and twisted threads to create striking artistic motifs, suggesting often exquisite and intricate lace-like patterns. The fine wire elements are soldered together to create small and rich accessories, usually jewellery pieces such as rings and necklaces, but in a bold, and certainly unexpected move, Boca do Lobo has been mastering the art turning it into upscale masterpieces.
