Esty Shop of the Week: Vintage Filigree

If you love all things Victorian or art nouveau inspired, Vintage Filigree is the place to buy your jewelry. These jewelers have written a great bio, so here's an intro from their own mouths: "I come from a very artistic family and was exposed to many art forms from an early age...My biggest influence came from two of my uncles, Samuel and Vincent. They were goldsmiths who specialized in making gold filigree jewelry. They would harvest the gold they used from South American gold mines. As a child I recall many afternoons spent in their respective studios watching them make their OWN beautiful and romantic lace like filigree designs; my favorite combinations were with Emeralds.

Influenced by my uncles’ work and an extensive study of jewelry design and fine arts, I started making my own jewelry and passing my knowledge on to my daughter. She started designing very intricate jewelry as far back as the early 80’s (I still keep a pair of Asymmetrical earrings she made for me back in the 80’s). We’ve combined our skills and the result is Vintage Filigree ;)

Our creations are all OUR ORIGINAL one of a kind or limited edition designs...All the work is intricately done by hand, exclusively by the artists / jewelry designers for Vintage Filigree, Pura and Gina Marie.

All of OUR jewelry designs are made with a touch mystique and romance, plus the combination of brilliant colors, dreams, and imagination. Each piece is delicately created one at a time, by hand and lavishly adorned. Our combined jewelry making experience of over 25 years make each of our creations FINE JEWELRY ART made with exquisite craftsmanship.

Our jewelry pieces are created using the best materials including a variety of vintage and new Czech glass beads and stones, brilliant Swarovski crystals, seed beads, fire polished beads and many other types of beads depending on each individual creation. The filigrees we use for our creations are stamped from brass and resemble fine lace work. They have been used for more than 100 years in the art of jewelry design. In fact you may see many of these filigree repousses, findings, stampings and embellishments on antique jewelry because our filigrees are vintage or reproductions made with the original antique dies which are still in service today. The filigrees are hand rendered and/or layered to encase our vintage/antique glass gems or designs. Therefore the end result is a timeless heirloom for yesterday, today and tomorrow; just like the type of beautiful jewelry you'd find in a grandmother's jewelry box."
