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

Ting Ya Lin

Nationality: Taiwan
Course: Jewelry Design
Program: Master Course
Period: Jan. 10, 2022 - Jul. 29, 2022

I was a nurse, but with my love and interest in art I studied interior design, jewelry design and metalworking related courses in the Institute of Applied Fine Arts at Fu Jen University in Taiwan. I like jewelry design very much, so I was honored to participate in the design competition held by the school, and I won the prize.
I decided to come here to take the jewelry design course for improving my drawing ability and deepen the knowledge of jewelry design. I hope that my design works will be appreciated and that I will open my own studio in the future.

Ponte Vecchio
It is a stone arch bridge built in the Middle Ages in Florence, Italy, spanning the Arno River. There are still shops on the bridge. The shops on the bridge were originally butcher shops, now are jewelry shops and tourist souvenir shops.

This bridge reminds me of the Otaru Canal in Japan. They give people the same artistic conception and have a sense of history.
