Jewelry Making 1-One Year Course 2017

I began my week with basic practices with the jeweller’s saw. My teacher drew lines and I had to follow as close to the lines as possible. I took me awhile to get the hang of it but eventually it became easier with practice.

I then had to cut out shapes for more practice since shapes are more difficult than lines as you have to constantly move the saw as you cut the metal sheet.

I also did a brass ring following the instructions from my teacher. With the flat sheet of metal, I had to cut out the shape of the ring, then using a compass to draw the rounded edges. After filing and cutting, I hammered dotted patterns as the design and then heated the metal, shaping it into a ring of my size.

I went to the tool shop to buy materials needed for my course. There were a lot to buy and with the help of my interpreter, I managed to locate the shop and bought my tools with ease.

The view of Florence on my way back home. It is very different here in Florence and I enjoy the view of the river most. Depending on the time of the day, the river seems to look different everytime.

In basic lesson, we learnt about the art history of florence, and how the different era is reflected through the archietecture. We learnt that different catherdrals in Florence is made by the different artists of that era, especially Renaissance.

Back to the work bench, perfecting circles and squares. This time, my teacher drew more circles and I had to cut a perfect circle, then file it with the different types of files: big, small or rounded, flat edged.

One of the days we went to the supermarket near the accomodation for some grocery shopping. We bought ham, cheese , bread, etc. The supermarket is near to the accomodation and is very big.

At the end of the week, I met up with my friend for dinner. We went across the river near Pitti Palace and I had really good spagetthi with mussels while she had the famous Florentine steak.
