Maltese Filigree

The delicate art of filigree was introduced in Malta and all over the Mediterranean and beyond by the Phoenicians but its charm and prestige may have been somewhat lost over the centuries. Maltese filigree is most often associated with jewellery items such as pins, earrings and pendants featuring the eight-pointed cross that tourists would mostly purchase as a souvenir or gift. However, today’s artisans are weaving more modern and exquisite pieces with those fine threads of silver and gold.
