The art of filigree handmade in Malta ☼
Hand crafted delicate, intricate, fanciful ornamentation work from fine twisted Gold or Silver wire.
Thank You Charles and Charmaine for these images.
Charles retired and closed his workshop in 2014 at the age of 71.
We are blessed that he has passed on the tradition to his daughter Charmaine.
I present to you a celebration of the life and work of Charles.
Please enjoy the rest of the handmade filigree category.
We are Lucky that The Art of Filigree lives, passed down through gifted hands from father to daughter.
THE POWER OF BELIEVING ☼

Charmaine designs and makes everything by hand using the most traditional techniques.
She buys the Pure Silver grains then melts it and hand makes all the silver wire and silver solder.
Then she creates the outline pattern and fills it with rizzol.
