CONFARTIGIANATO - IMPRESE

THE SECRETS OF GOLDSMITHING (04/05/2016)

Prezioso il luogo come preziose le sue creazioni. In un fresco pomeriggio di primavera siamo stati accolti dal garbato ed accogliente Tommaso Pestelli .
La Sua bottega con i soffitti a volta è racchiusa in mura antiche del centro storico di Firenze.
Tommaso ci ha descritto il suo lavoro con sapienza trasmettendo la sua passione.
Fra i mille particolari ci ha affascinato un cassetto pieno di matrici di gioielli antichi tramandate da generazioni: draghi, tartarughe, calessi trainati da buoi, un mondo fantastico che ci ha fatto sognare.

THE STORY

I grew up in the back room of my family shop, surrounded by beautiful and polished objects, by sketches and samples of a jewelry that reflected the most sophisticated and harmonious taste of bygone days. I could not help but fall in love with this world and follow the footsteps of my ancestors while adding a personal touch, at the same time.
Now, in this long way in pursuit of "Beautiful" I’m accompanied by my wife (an established artist in the world of graphic art), collaborator and non-stop inspiration from which new suggestions and ideas often arise.
We make entirely by hand All you can find in our workshop is made by our own hands and even all the designs are the result of our efforts.
"I consider an object successful when I’m able to balance the natural element - the beautiful shape of a stone, the wonderful color, the amazing transparencies - with the element of artifice I formed: none of them should dominate, the most beautiful things are in balance. "

THE SECRETS OF GOLDSMITHING

Tommaso, goldsmith

20

The visit will take place inside my studio - atelier and it will start with a brief history of our family which has been in the business of precious metals in Florence since 1908 . In a second moment you will discover the secrets behind the realization of a precious object. In the "mysterious" rooms in which all of our creations are conceived and shaped, we will tell you about the cornerstone of our work, so the ancient goldsmith techniques handed down from father to son.
