THE SECRETS OF THE GOLDSMITH CRAFT (08/07/2017)

What a lovely tour for someone with a passion for jewelry. Daniella and her sister were so welcoming, and I learned about history and goldsmithing, and got an intimate look at their business. Thank you so much!

Trascrivo le parole di mio padre a cui ho regalato la visita:

"Buona assai l'idea soprattutto per gli amanti di Firenze, molto brava la Silvia Messeri, espone bene, garbata, attenta, brava nella conoscenza dei fatti che espone, storia del palazzo dall'anno mille con piccoli cenni successivi, fantastico il lavoro dell'orafo Nerdi, fortunati noi per l'orario in cui non tanti sono entrati nella bottega, ci ha potuto illustrare la creazione di un bracciale stile etrusco dalla base del filo fino alla martellatura, incredibile il numero di passaggi!!"

I visited quite a few workshops while I was in Florence and I visited Daniela's workshop on my last day, but I have to say it was my most favourite! Maybe that is because I am a jeweller and have an invested interest in jewellery, but I think it is also because I love the romantic charm a workshop can have! A Florentine family business, based on handmade quality jewellery and with lovely people I felt a connection with this place. I met Silvia, Daniela's sister who welcomed me and made me feel at home and told me all about the history of their shop. Luca a family friend who has worked there for over twenty years showed me the processes of making their signiture jewellery range, a very modern and traditional design of Florence and we talked about the history of Florence's jewellery heritage. I remember when I was a young girl I visited Florence with my parents and my mother couldn't keep me away from all the jewellery shops and I remember then they were like artisan workshops where you could see the jewellers making in the shop. That is how I would describe this workshop! The famous Ponte Vecchio which is just around the corner may be eye catching with all its glittery shop displays, but here in Daniela's workshop you will see the true history of Florence's jewellery treasures.

Brillantezza ovunque è il paradigma che riassume questa visita. Oltre alla chiara brillantezza dell'oro, dell'argento e di tutti i materiali presenti, la brillantezza delle persone che lavorano dietro il bancone non ha prezzo. Sapere come dall'oro fuso si arriva a un anello o un bracciale, è stata, per me, una grande scoperta.

THE STORY

A real artisan shop with a strong touch of Renaissance, at Ponte Vecchio's Casa dell'Orafo, in the same monastery where the Medici family wanted to bring together the Florentine goldsmiths.
From that time on, here have worked all masters goldsmiths of Florence, passing on their ancient craft one generation to another. A laboratory that spreads out passion, art and tradition, the creativity of Florence, the industriousness of its people, the history that has made this city so known and has made it unique over the centuries.
This is the place where jewelry on commission are made, where precious metals are carved, where seals and coats of arms are realized, restored, modified and renewed.
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.

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.
