Here are the finished filigree pieces I've been working on for the past week or so!
Sterling silver, onyx. 2.5 inches (6.3 cm) tall. Not for sale.
Project #1 in the "Silver Threads" book. These are purportedly based on Norwegian style filigree. I added onyx beads instead of the pearls the author used, or the traditional gold dangles. They are big, and amazingly light in weight!
|Silver Filigree Star
Sterling silver. 1.75 in (4.4 cm) tall. Not for sale.
This is a slightly adapted version of project #2 in "Silver Threads." I rotated the points to bridge between 2 of the central motifs, instead of having each point attached to one motif, because I wanted the central star shape to be upright as well.
|Copper Filigree Star Tree Topper
Copper wire. 3.25 in (7.6 cm). Not for sale.
I made this large version of the (modified) star from the "Silver Threads book, to go on top of my little silver mylar fiberoptic Xmas tree in my studio.
