Subject: The Silver Thread: Silver Filigree and Traditional Arts in Kosovo
From early silver mines to 20th century politics, which resulted in a war, a silver thread winds through Kosovo's history. In its cultural capital, Prizren, a seventh generation of filigree artisans use intricate designs to magic lacy creations. The boxes, buttons, jewellery, religious ornamentation and talismans of superstition are a fine narrative of Kosovo's history and traditions.
