HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

In this workshop I will help you transform some old silver pieces into little nuggets. These can be turned into pendants or rings that could be personalized with your initials. A nice memory to bring back home.
To make your nugget even more personalized, you can take some small pieces of broken jewels of yours. These will be tested, and later we can melt them through a gas torch. Then, by using a hammer, a file and sand paper we will shape them.
This is just a little taste of the jeweler's job...

SOME TIPS

JOURNEY OF A JEWEL

Enrica, goldsmith workshop

20

I would love to take you to my kingdom for few hours. I want to show you how I make my jewels, from the initial idea until its realization in wax with the ancient technique called “lost wax”. I will show you some kind of jewelery waxes and the tools that I use. These are needed to create little sculptures that will become jewels once cast in silver or bronze. I will also would like to show you the final manufacturing made on the piece of metal. The way in which it is completed, welded with the gas torch, and the way in which pearls and stones are set. It takes time and experience to create a jewel with the lost wax technique. That is why this will be a short but intense visit so you can have a little taste of this creative and ancient craft.

THE SECRETS OF THE GOLDSMITH CRAFT

DANIELA, goldsmith workshop

25

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.
