About the craft: Silver Filigree is a handicraft in which silver wires are put together to create delicate and intricate designs. Filigree is done extensively In Cuttack and Karimnagar. The process of making filigree jewelry starts with drawing Silver wires from Silver Blocks. The thinner the wire, the more intricate the filigree work. The artisans first create the outer frame of the motif with silver wires and then fill the inside with intricate wires. The wires are then soldered together and polished .. and a timeless masterpiece is created!
