Abstract:  Filigree refers to laces like decoration using gold or silver wire. It is ideal for arabesque designs. One of the necessary steps in making filigree is the forming of the wire. It is made by twisting very tightly two pieces of very small silver wire and then flattened. Country-seeds, feathers, leaves, fruits, flowers, animal bones, claws and teeth have been used in early India to fashion ornaments. Even today such ornaments are popular in tribal societies. In India, filigree work of Karimnagar, Orissa, Srinagar, etc. are known for their intricate designs and artistic work. The paper describes the filigree work of Karimnagar and some of the filigree objects housed in the Salar Jung Museum, Hyderabad.
