Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Ashley Li Ye
Course: Jewelry Design
Program: One Year Course
Period: Sep. 3, 2018 - Apr. 26, 2019
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.
For this week, we focus more on creativity. The teacher provides us with three simple and basic designs, and we are requested to draw as many as possible designs we could think of based on those three.
We visited another famous Italian goldsmith in Florence who are Alessandro Dari. He studied chemistry to become a pharmacist and early on discovered he was fascinated with metals. He created his very first ring when he was 16.
My favorite piece in the shop. In some of the pieces, he used more than ten metals to craft them. After the trip, I learned we shouldn’t limit our imagination when comes to jewelry design, just let your mind run wild.
