Filigree and granulation are some of the oldest goldsmithing techniques. The techniques used are twisting silver or golden wires (Latin: filum) and soldring tiny beads made from the same precious metal onto the surface of the piece of jewellery. This is a very complicated technique that relatively few jewellers in any one culture have ever mastered. The basic methods were developed by ancient civilizations such as the Mesopotamians, Greeks, and Etruscans. Filigree and granulated jewellery remained popular in the Roman empire, was also eagerly sought after by the Anglo-Saxons, Slavs and Vikings, and remained popular throughout the Middle Ages. We still utilize these authentically ancient goldsmithing techniques to make our own models which will bring a little of this history home to you.
