She completed her BA degree in Fine Arts in 2011. Having studied sculpture, photographing, stone cutting, lost wax casting,electroforming and contemporary jewellery, she decided to follow her interest and focus on more traditional goldsmithing techniques. She came to Florence, the most famous city of art and craftmanship in Italy, to study jewelry making and also attended to courses specialized in hand engraving and Florentine fret saw piercing with highly skilled rofessors.

1. I finally continued engraving the hollow ring, which was one of the first works we made in the school back in October.
2. On the top of the sealing ring there is a traditional armour engraving with the symbol of a lion and decorative curls on the sides.
3. While making such a small engraving, I had to use the loop to see smaller details and every now and then press the ring onto pongo to see the final monogram reversed.
4. The finished top and the monogram pressed into a sealing wax.
