Filigree Inlay craftsmanship, also known as fine gold process, is the combination of filigreeing and inlaying. It has a history of more than 4,000 years in China. In 2008, the craft was inscribed into the second list of the National Intangible Cultural Heritage. It is noted for its consummate skills, diversity in shapes and brightness in glaze colors.

Filigreeing uses gold, silver and copper filaments as raw materials and employs such traditional techniques as nipping, filling, welding, weaving and piling. Inlaying uses such techniques as trimming, engraving, sketching, and knocking to make a support and a melon-seed shaped groove and then inlaid with pearls and gemstones. Through thousand years of inheriting, the Filigree Inlay craftsmanship has been crystallized with the wisdom and artistic creativity of the Chinese people. This episode "Filigree Inlay craftsmanship" will enable you to enjoy the unique charm of the craft.
