Filigree: Word of the Day

Filigree, n.
Delicate ornamental work of twisted gold, silver, or other wire.

The old chalice was tarnished, but the filigree work was exquisite.

Alternate usage:

“Phil won’t go.”

“What?  But it’s our annual hunting trip!”

“You talk to him.  Maybe you can make Phil agree.”

How will you use filigree in a sentence today?
