Filipa Oliveira is a specialist in contemporary filigree jewellery. Her work has been widely recognised and awarded by numerous jewellery institutions, as the Goldsmiths’ Company. She uses this ancient technique in an innovative way to lend detail and heritage to her work. This historical element allows both the past and present to be encompassed within each piece of jewellery and is evocative of different times and cultures.
Filipa has built a reputation as an expert in filigree and a leader in disseminating this unique knowledge within the industry, having taught the technique nationally and internationally. She trained as a goldsmith in Portugal and in Scotland at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, graduating in 2011 with 1st class honours. Filipa holds a passion for this art, which she shares with her students in her Contemporary Filigree Courses, and in the Contemporary Filigree Jewellery book, of which she is the author.
