She has some experience in metalsmithing and precious metal Silver clay. After winning the competition hosted by Accademia Raici, she started her path in this therapeutic city, Florence.
It all begins in the West of Europe, where nobility and royalty wore necklaces, earrings, bracelets and brooches that are made with pearl. Which caused the demand for pearl jewellery became so high that oyster supplies began to dwindle.
During the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, Japanese researchers were looking for techniques to cultivate pearls to increase supply to meet the growing demand for pearls. The first successful and most famous was Kokichi Mikimoto.
The instructor introduced many ways to render pearls, and I chose the way that I like from them. Trial on the colours, usually black pearl will have a peacock effect, and white pearls have all types of tones.
