Modern sterling silver filigree jewellery

When Chet was a kid she always looked up to her aunt who was a diplomat, painter, and jewelry enthusiast. They used to go through her treasures and there she started thinking about becoming a jeweler but waited until her thirties to make it her real profession. After a long-term metal techniques course and later apprenticed in a master goldsmiths studio in Grand Bazaar, she opened her own studio. Because she loves antique jewelry, she worked on techniques like granulation and filigree and created a brand called Luft where she designs and makes modern filigree jewelry.

With Luft, Chet implements the ancient technique of filigree to modern-day necklaces, rings, and earrings with her unique sense of esthetic. She uses filigree as a filling to emptiness and this texture creates a unique style. She uses precious metals like gold and silver and beautiful precious semi-precious stones like garnet, topaz, citrine, tourmaline, ruby, and emerald to create more sparkle. She likes symbolism, creating talismans using symbols like evil eyes, Fleur de Lys, zodiac signs, hearts, wings, alchemy symbols. Everything in this shop is handcrafted by her, computers are almost never used, just like in the good old days.

About the ancient technique filigree: Originated around 3000 B.C., filigree is constructing objects or jewelry with micron-level thin silver or gold wires. These wires are used in various shapes to form different motifs and then they are soldered together mostly within a frame to create the final piece. The end product resembles metal lace.
