Filigree Fanatic!


1. delicate ornamental work of fine silver, gold, or other metal wires, esp. lacy jewelers' work of scrolls and arabesques.
2.  anything very delicate or fanciful: a filigree of frost.


Delicate, ornamental, fanciful and just plain gorgeous - I can't get enough of filigree!! I think my special love of filigree came from my Dad. Shocking, I know.

Back when he was in college, my Grandma gave him a box of four silver plastic filigree ornaments for his Christmas tree. He kept them forever. I don't remember a single Christmas from my childhood that my Dad didn't insist on hanging all four ornaments himself. What a tough guy... ;)

Juliette (sold out)- This necklace literally takes my breath away. I honestly don't know if I can bear to sell it. Juliette is  everything that is soft and feminine: Ballet, lace, pastel pink, roses, pearls.  Just unabashed girliness and romance all wrapped up in one delicate necklace. Yeah, I'm in love.

Cranberry Cocktail - (sold out) This necklace looks tasty enough to drink! I just love the gorgeous ruby red beads of this necklace, especially because I had to bargain for them. Yep. Half the strand was missing but I knew they were perfect for my vision of this necklace so I wheeled and dealed and got 'em on sale and half off. Oh yeah.

This is another necklace I love so much I don't even want to sell. Seriously - I need to get over that. But I mean just look at it! Bright red, sparkly, full of festive cheeriness, and just perfect for that holiday formal or cocktail party. What's not to love?

Queen Anne - I may have gone a little over the top on this one but I don't care, it was too pretty not to make. This necklace is an ornate Victorian style explosion of filigree fanciness. The ivory rose cabochon came to me all the way from South Korea. I was so impatient to get it, I stalked the mailman for 2 weeks! I realize this necklace isn't for the faint of heart, but do you think Queen Anne or Queen Elizabeth were faint of heart? I think not!

Pay homage to Queen Anne here

There is no way I have exhausted my fancy for filigree yet, so be assured you will see much, much more in the future!
