Filigree (Russian — filigree, eng. filigree) is an openwork or soldered on the metal pattern wire. The word "filigree" shows the essence of manufacture: Latin filum "thread" and granum "grain" and the Russian "filigree" from the ancient Russian "scat"(twist, make a bitch).

Filigree is brazed, delicate and voluminous. In openwork filigree the metal base is there: a wire pattern is soldered by itself, and the granulation is attached directly on the metal lace.

Filigree (skanna) technique (filigree,filigree) is highly valued in jewelry.
