*Cannetille work was inspired by embroidery, reputedly the embroidery found in traditional peasant garments. The simple filigree tendrils that started to appear in the fashion and jewelry world around 1820 transformed into cannetille during the following decade. Cannetille is different from filigree in the way that the ornaments are 3-dimensional with some repousse work while the filigree work is primarily flat. One can find cannetille work from almost every European nation during the 1820's and 1830's.
