Wings Earrings

In the four days of this intensive course, you will be able to immerse yourself in the world of one of the most ancient techniques in jewelry, learning step by step every phase to realize a Filigree jewelry piece.

Starting from the twisting technique of metal wires, you will discover the endless possibilities of weaving, and intertwining and filling in the wire.

Under the guidance of the teacher, every student will have the possibility to create a wearable piece working the silver with special hand-made pliers, in order to ‘weave’ a unique jewel, interlacing a centuries-old technique with your own unique hand trait.

What is more, with the knowledge of the traditional technique every student will be followed personally through a creative process, focused on empowering each unique artistic language. Inspiring exercises and imaginative activities will help the students to develop original ideas in the making of a contemporary and unusual Filigree piece of jewelry.
