ABOUT FILIGREE:

Filigree is a real 'art',that if it isn't done right,it becomes obvious in the over all look.Just a couple of millimeters can make a huge difference in getting the form even & Unfortunately not all that do filigree, are masters,since it takes years & practically a lifetime to create such a 'precise' piece, as this is..

Federico is known to offer some of the finest filigree work & the filigree artists he uses,are some of the best in the industry.It is very obvious that this was made by one of Federico's top filigree artists & is made with pristine Folk Art style perfection!

It takes an honest,sincere passion for the art & a whole lot of patience & skill, to do filigree at the level this necklace is made.With each perfectly looped & curved wire,takes precision & good dexterity & the years this artist has in at this technique,definitely shows!

If you zoom in on some of the photos you will see what I am talking about.

DESCRIPTION:

Time consuming days of filigree wire work went into the making of this,which is made with oxidized sterling wire & gives it the beautiful vintage looking quality it has..It is nice & solid because of the amount of all the wire.The wide center piece looks to be "leafs" & is what gives the piece it's width,along with it's curved touch..Pearl garlands are hand sewn & follows the graceful curvature of the leaves. It is hooked to the round flowerette panels & sits 'wide' on the chest because of the flowers being hooked to the far right & left top portion of the leaves.

The bezel set filigree 'flowers' are made with sterling wire that have had a 'diamond cutting' technique done to the wire,so it sparkles somewhat when it moves with the light! 

This is an outstanding & breathtaking work of art to say the least!! Pair this with some Frida style oxidized filigree earrings, for that powerful authentic Mexican look! (See last photo)
