The process of handcrafting gilded lace is effort and time-intensive. First, the lace is cut with precision. The edges are sealed by hand-sewing on ribbons. Then the lace is sealed and shaped by dipping it into lacquer and molding it (e.g., around a drinking glass for cuff bracelet designs) to its final shape.
After a dip in a bath of either sterling silver or 24K gold, The jewelry is filed by hand. Every hold is carefully smoothed to ensure a comfortable fit and that the lace pattern is clearly visible down to the finest detail. The jewelry is then shined and ready to wear.
