Freya’s Fantasy Filigree – (New!)
It is said that Freya, the Nordic goddess of love wagered all to acquire the beautiful “Brisingamen” necklace fashioned by dwarves. The medieval texts do not describe what the necklace looked like but we can imagine that Scandinavian filigree work was a signature element. Using twisted fine silver wire we will create a beautiful pendant fit for a queen! We will use the same tools and techniques of traditional filigree incorporating a contemporary “twist” in design. Previous metalworking experience recommended but not required. A willingness to work with hand tools and soldering equipment are a must. All tools and materials provided. There will be a materials fee of $95 – $125.
Level of instruction: All levels. Previous metalworking experience is recommended but not required. A willingness to work with hand tools and soldering equipment are a must. Freya’s Fantasy Filigree is a prerequisite for Traditional Filigree: Sweet Sølje Pin.
