The Story: Filigree, an ancient art of crafting jewelry with fine thin metal wires, is believed to have originated in Mesopotamia & Egypt and spread to Asia around the 2500 BC. Indian and Greek filigree still have similar patterns and processes to this day. Today, more than hundred families in Cuttack, Orissa, are engaged in this craft. Locally known here as “Cuttacki Tarkashi”, the silver filigree of Orissa is world renowned for its delicate artistry and brilliant craftsmanship.

The craftsmen have a unique method for fixing firmly, the numerous components. The craftsmen, who belong to the Sunar, (goldsmith) community of Orissa, practice the craft which was introduced in the state during Mughal rule. Thick silver wires are used to make the frame into which small design pieces made from thinner wires are fitted. The craftsmanship lies in fitting the small parts perfectly in the frame.

Thin silver wires are carefully shaped and made into intricate designs. Fine strings of silver threads are produced by drawing it through a series of consecutive holes of very small diameter. These wires are then heated and wound around a charkha, and then later fastened together. These threads are then shaped into various designs and patterns. Filigree is thus a combination of different pieces joint together. Cuttack is the hub of silver filigree locally known as Tarkasi jewelry attracting people from all over the world.
