Jewelry Course : First week in Florence

Even though I have been here before, when I arrived to Florence I felt like it was the first time.
I spend my first night in Florence alone, because the other girls didn’t arrive yet.

I was scared at first, and I had a lot of things in my mind. The next day I went to the downtown and I saw the amazing city that I chose to live in. I love the architecture, church, the buildings, everything is breathtaking in this town.
My dorm was amazing, I had a very nice view of the city throw the balcony. I use to be like 30 minutes away from the city center.
I use to share the residence with four Japanese girls. It was a we thing for me because I had never lived with someone before. I learned a lot about them, the culture, the food, some words in Japanese also. They were so kind and friendly with me.
I shared my room with a Japanese girl, she was so lovely and kind but we couldn’t talk very much because she didn’t speak English or Italian, and that was a little bit of a problem.

EA pesar de que he estado aquí antes, cuando yo llegué a Florencia me sentí como si fuera la primera vez aqui.
Pase mi primera noche en Florencia sola, porque las otras chicas no llegaban todavía.

Yo estaba asustada al principio por dormir sola pero como estaba tan cansada no pense mucho en eso. Al día siguiente fui al centro y vi la hermosa ciudad que elegí para vivir, me encanta la arquitectura, las iglesias, los edificios, todo en esta ciudad es impresionante.
Mi habitación era increíble, tenia una hermosa vista de desde el balcón de la casa.
Comparti el departamento con cuatro chicas japonesas, para mi era una cosa nueva, ya que nunca había vivido con chicas japonesas. Aprendí mucho de ellas, la cultura, la comida, algunas palabras en japonés. Llegue a tenerles un gran cariño a cada una de ellas, nos llevamos bien y compartiamos momentos juntas. Compartí mi habitación con una chica japonesa, ella era tan encantador y amable, pero no pudimos hablar mucho porque ella no hablaba Inglés o italiano , anuncio que fue un poco de un problema .

My first day at school

I went to the school on first day of class, I was so excited to meet new people.
When I was in my class, the teacher introduced herself and explained some of our works for the semester.
In my class we are three girls, one of Brazil, one of Bolivia and me from Ecuador.
The teacher asked us to design something, so I made an earring and a ring.
The first lesson that we took was “vistas” .
And we learned to see a ring in many positions. This part is very important when designing because it is the first step to understand the construction of the ring.

Mi primer día en la escuela

Fui a la escuela el primer día de clase, yo estaba tan emocionada de conocer a gente nueva, compañeros de clases y al profesor.
Cuando estaba en mi clase, el profesor se presentó y explicó algunos de nuestros trabajos para el semestre.
En mi clase somos tres chicas, una de Brasil , uno de Bolivia ya yo de Ecuador. El profesor nos pidió que diseñara algo, así que hice un par de aretes y un anillo, todo a mano alzada, no estuvo tan lindo, pero era lo primero que se me vino a la mente.

La primera lección que nos tomamos fue ” vistas ” , aprendimos a ver un anillo en muchas posiciones, esto ayudo bastante para entender como hacer un anillo. Esta parte es muy importante en el diseño, ya que es el primer paso para comprender la construcción del anillo.

These are some of my first work in school
