You will watch, touch and observe the jewels engraved following different techniques.
Then we will move to my lab where I'll show you the manufacturing stages, the preparation of metallic sheet, the description of different types of burin and their usage, how to deal with some of my equipment. Of course I will also have a brief exhibition so that you will better understand the different kind of engraving.

In the second part of the experience we will prepare the drawing that we are going to engrave, you will understand how to use the burin in order to sign the sketch. Now you can finally try it yourself, engrave the pattern and polish your artifact before having some final consideration. You will have the chance to take your creation away with you.

Have you ever wondered where does the inspiration to realize a dress come from?? In my case the inspiration are my clients. I interpret their dreams and their needs. I support them and suggest them which are the lines and the colors that could enhance their personality. Are you curious about getting to know how to go from the personality to the drawing? I invite you to try this experience during an explanatory talk and a first draft of the drawing thought just for you!
