At our school center in Florence we offer Courses in Jewellery, Stone Setting, Chasing and Gemology combined with our language courses, lasting 3 months to one year.

This course is directed to the making of high quality objects. The course includes different ways of Goldsmithing. At the beginning students learn to make simple objects to get acquainted with the tools and various material, and how to handle the different gems and metals. Afterwards they learn how to give shapes to the metal plates and wires, and how to make modern objects with mobile elements and parts made with metal embossement techniques. The third part of more classical teaching will be using techniques like: Open-working (boring), Florentine Style and elements constructed with metal wires.
