Up-to-date report from one of our students!

Xiao Wangyue

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

I haven’t received professional training in jewelry when I was in university. I turned to be a jewelry designer from HR during my study abroad in Japan, and rely on my love for jewelry and the embarrassment of being a designer. After studying jewelry (design and making) in Japan, I worked in Tokyo as a jewelry designer. As a newcomer to the jewelry industry, there is still a long way to go, and I hope to make breakthroughs and improvements in the next six months of Italy.
