For this week we started on basic cuts of stones and also light reflections rendering on stones.
The instructor introduced to us how to simplify each cut when comes to designing jewelry, as it is not practical to draw out all the facets.
Starting with learning how to draw round, marquise, oval and pear shape for this week. We also learned how to render light reflections on stones.
Continued with the color rendering of stones, we did 3 primary colors for each cutting which we learned earlier.
We were introduced to the history of BVLGARI, a Luxury Italian Jewelry brand. And also, the famous designs that it has produced.
A video about production procedure of BVLGARI was watched. From choosing stones, jewelry designing to crafting.
At the last lesson of the week, we went down to BVLGARI in Florence. It is famous for jewelry that has fantastic color combinations, using both facets and cabochon stone.
Most selling selection B.zero1 and snake series were also seen in the stall.
We also visited an Italian luxury lifestyle brand, Stefano Ricci, to update ourselves on the current fashion trend. At here, you can find designs often seen on politicians.
