Introduction Filigree jewelry artists across the globe unite to bring you the highest quality jewelry art using filigree, to promote "creative filigree design" through cooperation. Though filigree has become a special branch of jewel work in modern times, it was anciently part of the ordinary work of the jeweler. Even before the 1800s the French and Italians used wire to wrap into intricate designs known as filigree. (modification of French filigrane and from Italian filigrana.) Filigree has been used in jewelry making and ornamentation throughout time by the Greeks, Egyptians, Romans, French, Etruscans and many more civilizations and time periods. Our goal is to promote jewelry designers who use filigree in their original works and who display all forms of good character and outstanding business practices.
