Jewelry Making 2-One Year Course 2017

During the weekends my housemates and I went to Pisa for a day trip. It was raining super heavily and the train delayed for a few hours but eventually we managed to get there.

It was worth the wait and we managed to take many pictures before it could rain again. I enjoyed the trip very much despite the weather as it was the first outing together with my new friends.

Monday I was back to the work bench, working on a new ring. This time the ring is more difficult as it requires more work and attention to detail. I had to cut a few different pieces and solder them together.

After firing it, I bend the ring to form its shape and size. Soldering the ends, it completes the circle. This ring is more challenging that the first one as both ends needs to meet perfectly for the ring to take shape.

When the rings are completed, it goes through a final polish to make it shine! This is the best part of the process as my work finally looks ready to be worn. It feels that my hard work has been paid off.

Gelato is a main part of my diet and every week I try to find new gelato shops to see which is the best. This is one of the best shops around the Duomo! Gelato break during midweek of school is very necessary.

The next project will be working on silver. We need to melt 92.5% of silver with copper. Pure silver is weighed and the measurements have to be exactly proportionate to the copper.


Celine GOH SINING_20170915_08
My interpreter/ lab assisstant Constance is demonstrating how to melt the silver and copper together. It is very tricky and requires high heat to melt it. At the end, a silver sheet is produced which will be worked on and further refined.

For dinner, I decided to cook some carbonara pasta using local ingredients. My housemate who is taking Home Cooking taught me how to do so. I added bacon, mushrooms and fresh cream.

The final product! A good meal after a long day at school. My housemates enjoyed it very much as well. There was none left and I will definitely be cooking it again. I enjoy cooking now that I am living overseas and it has taught me to be more independent.
