A profession between art, design and craftsmanship
The profession of the jewelry designer is closely linked to the artistic sensibility of our time and lies on the borderlines between art, design and handicraft.
To be able to design fascinating jewels one needs first of all to undersand the dreams of our times.
The jewelry designer translates these dreams into his works.
For this reason, it is really important that a school, in addition to transferring the secrets of the trade, also brings out the talent of each student and helps to develop a personal working method.
Our study program is conceived precisely to develop the individual sensitivity of students and moves towards a concrete realm.
