HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

At Ponte Vecchio's Casa dell'Orafo, in a location with a strong Renaissance touch, in the same monastery where the Medici family wanted to bring together the Florentine goldsmiths.
Between mergers of gold and pure silver, crucibles, cuttlefish and chisels, we will show you some of the secrets of the 'Florentine goldsmith's art in a simple and original space, creating with our guidance the thin rings of a hammered chain, as it happened over 2,000 years ago.
We will try to hand down the passion, the art and tradition, the creativity of Florence, the industriousness of its people, the history that has made this city and made it unique in the centuries.
A simple, authentic and original location, a place that has not changed over the years in the furnishings and tools which, as in ancient times, are used to create and restore jewelry and art objects.

The artisan tradition, the restoration and creation of jewelry are the core of our business.
A heritage that fascinates and it's renewed everytime.

SOME TIPS

Get ready for having a look at the shining precious stones, surrounded by gold and pure silver, crucibles and gravers.
The emotion will be great and if there will be some children, you will see their eyes brighting.
It is possible to agree upon a different time from that specified.

REALIZE YOUR INLAY

A one week holiday in Florence to visit the city, its museums and its churches but, above all, the perfect occasion to learn the basics of inlay right inside an old traditional workshop. During the 24 hours course (4h per day from Monday to Saturday, in the morning or afternoon) you will realize some inlay works experimenting different traditional techniques. At the end of the course you will bring home the artifacts and most of all you will have the knowledge you’ll need to create other brand new works on your own.

WORKSHOP

BURIN ENGRAVING CLASS

Negar, goldsmith

60

During the experience in my showroom I will tell you about the burin engraving applied to goldsmith craft, we will have a brief conversation on this special technique from the traditional Florentine goldsmith culture to the contemporary usage. 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.
