A variety of thin and delicately worked silver articles of jewellery and household items are the hallmarks of silver filigree work

An Ornamented Art
The twisted silver wire is the main material. The silversmith crimps thin strips of fine silver into zigzag patterns and loops around the thicker silver strips, which form the framework of the main object. The strips of fine silver are then deftly soldered. Because of their unique zigzag-knitting pattern, they seem like exquisite lace work with fine silver.

The Unique Styles
Three types of styles are used in Silver Filigree work. These patterns are called 'Meenakari', 'Khulla Jaal' and 'Flowers and Leaves'. Entirely handmade, the silver used for this craft is of very high quality. The designs of leaves, flowers, trees, animals and birds seem to be predominant.
