Filigree : Artistic Twinings

Filigree is a delicate form of artwork, usually done in gold or silver. It has been around since the days of antiquity and is one of the most beautiful art forms. Filigree originated in Greece but India also has a rich tradition in it, probably because of the Greeks who migrated to the East and settled there. In India, silver filigree has been very popular in Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. In Cuttack, silver filigree is called ‘Tarakasi’ and is commonly known as ‘Jali work’ in other parts of India. This tradition has passed on from ages and is advancing.
