Note: Portuguese Filigree is a handcrafted goldsmithing technique that uses fine gold or silver threads, twisted 2 to 2 and flattened, which are applied in a previously defined and elaborated frame.
After the frame is designed, we have the shape of the piece and the delimited areas to be filled by the twisted wires, and these are applied manually and thoroughly, filling the structure of the piece with the defined decoration.
