Filigree is described as a metalworking technique that creates intricate scroll and curlicue patterns. This is often used to make decorative necklace and bracelet clasps and nowadays many jewelry makers still use this technique in the jewelry which they produce.

Moreover, it is a type of overlay made up from wires into elaborate patterns (floral, spider-web, etc.) which was a very popular decoration on more expensive pens up through 1920.
