Experience the art of Sardinian filigree-making

Visit a goldsmith’s workshop in the heart of Dorgali to experience the ancient art of Sardinian filigree making. As you enter, hear the sound of hammers and smell the scent of melting metal. See walls lined with tools and equipment used for generations. Mattia, the filigree goldsmith, will invite you to his workbench and will explain the process of filigree crafting from the fusion of precious metals to the creation of the jewel: rolling, drawing, design, and final product.

Try the drawing technique

Mattia will demonstrate the drawing technique, where he will twist a thin wire into a small bead called a grain, which he will then incorporate into the filigree design. You can try this technique yourself, under his guidance. You will see a beautiful Sardinian jewel take shape before your eyes. As you work, Mattia will share stories of the history and traditions of Sardinian filigree over the centuries. He will also share his family’s history.

Buy a piece of jewelry

As the workshop ends, you can purchase a piece of filigree jewelry made by Mattia. Each piece is handmade. As you leave, you will feel a sense of connection to the ancient traditions of Sardinia and a deep appreciation for the skill and artistry.
