Filigree – Tradition and Innovation
From: 11/11/2009 To: 13/11/2009

Handmade filigree works by Kevin Attard and Charmaine Gerada - an exhibition of jewellery and other varied pieces in both the traditional styles as well as the more audacious and innovative forms.

The aim is to highlight the flexibility of this Maltese form of silver smithing, and to reveal the more artistic aspect of filigree design.

At Palazzo Castellania in Valletta there is a permanent filigree exhibition where jewellery designer Kevin Attard will be collaborating with a number of established and upcoming local artists to develop a jewellery creation – pendant or earrings to their artistic design.

Visitors can meet the filigree maker and ask questions about the jewellery, observe filigree being made, meet an artist, and eventually see each artist’s design on display as the days go by.

Ultimately the final collection of artistic designs and filigree jewellery produced from them will be showcased during the last days of the exhibition and officially made public at the exhibition’s closing event.
