Pamela BAHRE

Nationality: Chile
Course: Jewelry Making
Program: One Year Course
Period: Jan. 14, 2019 - Jul. 26, 2019


My name is Pamela Bähre-Ebensperger, I’m the offspring of German/Austrian immigrants to Chile, South America. I first started learning silversmith and goldsmith back in 2008, since then, I haven’t stopped!! I was a model since I was 14 (back to 1996) and then my career took an international path in 2001. Because of that, I was fortunate enough to live in many countries across the planet, impregnating my soul not only with original beauty but also with unique beliefs, habits, way of living, and all that could come in between…. I quit modeling when I was 30 years old (7 years ago) and it took me some time to let go of my “attachment” to my “babies” (a.k.a my jewelry), once I did (Thank Heaven!!!) I decided my contribution to this world will be one of beauty, power and inspiration. Gemstones and metals not only tore energy, they transmit, transmute, enhance and even nullify it, therefore, every piece of jewelry is unique. It represent a state of Consciousness/ Being of the bearer, and as such, they serve either as Amulets or Talismans. This is the intention behind/ beside/ above and below my creations. In the Spirit of humility I can’t really say much about me, if there’s any opinion or judgment to be formed about me, it is my preference you do it yourself. The one thing I can ay though, I that nothing makes me happier than life itself and that to be of service to all Beings and, specially, to the Greater Good, beats anything!!!!!!

Jewelry Making vol.1 (Master 2019 – Pamela)

I will give a brief summary of what my life, and classes, have been since I arrive in Florence, about 3 weeks ago.
I arrived here on January 7th, a week before starting classes. I got an extremely strong flu quite right away, which left me in bad condition, since I have asthma, for me, anything that has to do with the respiratory system is delicate. I gather all my strength to be able to do the “permesso di soggiorno” and all that includes that, such as, finding the post office that could give me the envelope with the paper work (which involved a lot of walking).

En este reporte dare un pequeno sumario de mi vida y mis clases desde que llegue a vivir a Florencia, 3 semanas atras.
Llegue a esta cuidad el 7 de Enero, una semana antes de empezar las clases. Con unos pocos dias aca, me enferme muy fuerte, creo que fue un resfrio pero tambien pudo haber sido una bronquitis, y como tengo asma, para mi, todo lo que tenga que ver con el sistema respiratorio es mu delicado. Reuni todas mis fuerzas para poder hacer el “permesso di soggiorno” y todo lo que ello implica, como por ejemplo, el recorrer casi todo el centro de la cuidad buscando una oficina postal que tuviera el sobre con los documentos necesarios.

My first week of class was a weak one, since I only made it to the first class, due to my sickness. Once I recovered I was able to attend every class from the 2nd week onwards.
So far, the experience has been very interesting.
I have finished one piece of jewelry, a pendant leaf, and I’m getting to know how the world of setting small stones work. I know how to set stones and I have done few small settings but I hadn’t done what our teacher, Monica, is teaching us, so I’m very pleased.

Mi primera semana de clases fue precaria pues solo pude ir a la primera clase debido a que me sentia muy debil. Una vez que me recupere, pude atender todas las clases desde la segunda semana.
Hasta ahora la experiencia ha sido muy interesante.
He terminado una pieza de joyeria, un colgante con forma de hoja, y me he estado adentrando al mundo del engaste de las piedras pequenas. Se como engastar piedras grandes y he aprendido ciertos engastaes como el “ channel setting” en el pasado pero no tengo maestria en ello y no he hecho nunca lo que nuestra profesora, Monica, nos esta ensenando, asique eso me tiene muy satisfecha y con energies de seguir adelante.

I have enjoyed very much our Fridays cultural visits with Barbara and I must say that Monica, Barbara and Daniele are EXCELLENT TEACHERS!!! The 3 of them know so much, I am sure they excel in their respective fields and I’m honored I’m learning from them.

Me han gustado mucho nuestros paseos artisticos con Barbara cada viernes, y debo decir que Monica, Barbara y Daniele son profesores EXELENTES!!! Los tres saben muy su rubro, no me extranaria que sobresalieran en lo que hacen y me siento alagada de aprender de ellos.

Emanuela, Constance and all the staff in the Accademia are all very kind, knowledgeable and over all the spirit of the place has a great vibe.
As a business owner I still have to take care of things other than my staying here so my social life has been scarce. I’m learning Italian by myself, I have a friend in Milano whom I visited last weekend and I’m working on my own projects so I’m afraid I can’t really talk much about other things than school here.

Emanuela, Constance y todos los que trabajan en Accademia Riacci son muy atentos, saben mucho y la vibra general de la Accademia es muy alta, muy de hermandad y ayuda y eso me gusta mucho.
Como duena y directora de mi propio negocio y linea de joyas tengo que aun preocuparme y manejar muchas otras cosas asique mi vida social ha sido pobre o casi nula si no fuera por una amiga que vive en Milano, a la que he visitado el fin de semana pasado, y la sociabilidad que demandan otros projectos que estoy desarrollando, en esta luz, no es mucho lo que puedo hablar de mi vida privada.
