JEWELLERY DESIGN (BASIC)
The course provides the theoretical-practical basis of jewelry design, aimed to learn the necessary creative and graphic skills. The technique used is watercolour and tempera, an exclusive technique devised by Giovanni Valli who was designer of BVLGARI from ‘ 45 to ‘ 90.
The Jewellery Design course takes place in 12 hour s of lessons. The main topics are: basic techniques of jewelry design, colouring of gemstones and metals, graphic layout with pictorial techniques, realization of the jewel, study of the method aimed at the realization of a personal production.
JEWELLERY DESIGN (ADVANCED)
The course, open to those who have already attended the basic course or with proven experience in design and basic metalworking techniques, envisages the design and implementation of tridimensional jewels and accessories, also using alternative materials.
The student will face the design and production of more complex fashion ornaments. The aim is to make the student able to identify the market fashion trends and the production of a more complex jewelry collection, helping him to find a personal creative path.
Halfway between the goldsmith and the sculptor, the Goldsmith-Wax Craftsmen who work with the ancient lost wax technique is able to make classic or contemporary jewels, original and of a certain effect, which can be processed to casting and finishing to be offered to the final customer, or to workshops and goldsmith industries .
The use of the wax for the realization of the prototypes allows to be extremely fast and versatile, without the need of much space and with a minimum equipment. Our courses are targeted to train Goldsmith-Wax Craftsmen, teaching the techniques and allowing each student to realize complete jewels since the very first lesson.
BIJOUX WITH PLASTIC MATERIALS: PLEXIGLASS
The course is dedicated to the design and production of ornamental objects in plexiglass / resins / silicones. Aimed at beginners, but also for those who already own the techniques of jewellery.
The course foresees an introduction to the methods of processing plastics. Topics covered during the course: typologies and characteristics of materials, commercially available formats and their applications, artisanal and industrial processing techniques, introduction to the design, realization of projects.
3D DESIGN WITH CAD
The purpose of the course is to create an approach to the gradual 3D modelling, through the knowledge of the two-dimensional design, fundamental basis to get to the construction of an object.
Each lesson will be followed by a tutorial to put into practice the notions examined during the course. Universal basic jewellery models will be created, propaedeutical to the creation of more complex jewellery.
DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PERSONALIZED WATCH
Elaboration of ideas with freehand sketches and rigorous CAD design, 3D rapid prototyping and hand finishing/assembly of lost wax castings. From the binomial innovation + tradition origins a new watch, personalized in every detail.
Basic module: Design and implementation of a given model.
Advanced module: Design and implementation of your own watch model.
