🇬🇧 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 in Italy.

🇨🇳 并非科班出身,在日留学期间从HR转战珠宝设计,完全凭借着自己对宝饰品的这份热爱与对设计师这份职业的憧憬。在日学习了珠宝设计与制作后留在东京工作。作为珠宝界的新人,还有很长的路要走,希望在意大利的这半年中有所突破和提高。

It all started with a well.
In 1973, in fact, during the paving of an ancient road of the castle of Montelupo, an ancient well was found, called the sink well. Used as a dump for the nearby furnaces, the well of the wash houses proved to be a great archaeological deposit that collected the testimonies of the productions.
