Filigree (formerly written filigrann or filigrane) is a jewel work of a delicate kind made with twisted threads usually of gold and silver.

i was kind of bored and wanted a BREAK from work.. so i looked around the house.. and found this...thought they could make for interesting macros.
my mums parents gifted this to her when she got married 27 yrs back.
This set was made over 100 years back and is totally handmade.
so here's some macros et all...
