Handcrafted filigree double drop design with turquoise stones.
Filigree is a laborious craft of fine wire formed into delicate tracery. This is an endangered art form in Nepal as new generations of silversmiths are focusing on learning contemporary skills. The majority of filigree work is being produced by the oldest silversmiths - around 60-70 years old. It takes exceptional patience and concentration to master this art.
Turquoise is a sacred healing stone to open communication and stabilise moods.
