    1. Whoa. I didn’t know about this, I adore and need to recreate it.

      • The filigree is extremely easy to do. This is elementary stuff. I would have to order the glass case or find the right mold and slump the glass in a kiln and form a bezel around it. The lock and key would be very easy. It is extremely do-able.

        • Nice, oh right this is what you do. I have no idea about any of this but I was going to look for the glass first and then add everything else, if I can. But it all depends on whether I can find the glass. I’m a carpenter so if I fail with the metal I’ll just try wood. Filigree is such a beautiful word.

          • Look for Silver Threads on Amazon. You could do this pretty easily with a pair of pliers, a creme brulee torch and a soldering board. Honestly, the hardest part beyond setting the glass cab is getting filigree wire, but being in Europe, you should be able to find it easier than I can. At worst, look for Norwegian crafters, this is similar to their style. There is probably a glass artist near you that could make the face.
