About us

Becar family's filigree and silver-work shop has tradition since 1961. We make ornaments from silver in filigree but also in classic technique. However, this handicraft belongs to art-crafts. Filigree is specifically remarkable for its beauty, where ornaments are made from thin silver or gold wire that knits and bends almost in perfect forms. This requires handicraftsman's great patience and skill.

This handicraft is present in Bosnia about 500 years but, unfortunatelly, there is much less workshops where you may see handicraftsmen making ornaments in this
almost forgotten technique. That's the reason why filigree is declared as a craft in short supply. Our goal is to combine the traditional way of making jewelry with modern design, and to try in this way to contribute to presentation and preservation of this almost forgotten handicraft in the world.
