Jewelry Making 9-One Year Course 2017

During the weekends I went to Lucca again for the annual Comics and Games Festival. This time round the city was packed with people and it took us 30 minutes just to enter the city.

There were many people cosplaying characters from Japanese and American comics, some of which I could identify and others that peaked my interest. I have never seen a festival on a city wide scale as such before!

There were also many exhibitions for games like Overwatch, Call of Duty and from television channels like Netflix and such. The queue to enter was way too long so I’ve only walked around the exhibition space.

My solitare ring is almost complete, I am left with the rounding of edges and a final polish. It took me so long to complete this ring and now I understand why engagement rings are that expensive.

The final ring is completed. Despite taking such a long time to finish this ring, I abosultely love it! I cannot wait to start gem setting and set my citrine.

My second lesson for engraving class, Marco is showing us how to sharpen the cotelo. It has to be sharp enough to create clean lines. To test its sharpness, the blade has to stick onto our nails.

We learned how to engrave a leaf design using the rigeta tool, which creates beautiful patterns and textures depending on how it is used.

This is the final piece. I really liked how it turned out and engraving this leaf has been very enjoyable for me. It adds a lot of detail and dimension to the jewellery and I can see myself creating more pieces.

For the last lesson of engraving this year, Marco showed me the different patterns I could create with a new tool, the mezza tonda knife. He also showed me how to engrave names.

My Japanese classmate’s last day of class here and we took a picture to commemorate the class. I look forward to seeing Marco again next year and hope to improve on my engraving before that.
