The Republic of Malta lies in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea which is surrounded by 20 nations inhabited by more than 400 million people. Filigree making dates to the Phoenicians and is distinct to the Mediterranean basin. Silver or gold granules are poured into moulds which produce ingots after cooling and are then stretched into thin wire and hand-wound into shapes, with ornate designs being most prized and valuable.
