This brooch was made by the master of intangible cultural heritage in 70s
Technique: Handmade Filigree. 0.27 mm Silver strands are coiled together creating an intricate and beautiful pattern and then go through enamel firing process.
The ancient art of Eastern filigree is much more labor intensive than European cast designs but the effort is repaid by the delicate brilliance of the myriad strands reflecting light in fine patterns. Filigree is part of “intangible cultural heritage”, according to UNESCO.
Filigree art originated in the Warring States Period in China (475-221 BC). Filigree Inlay art still survives in a few small workshops in China.
Any type of art can be kept alive only when it can breathe on its own!
