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

Pamela BAHRE

Nationality: Chilean
Course: Jewelry Making
Program: One-Year Course
Period: Jan. 14, 2019 - Jul. 26, 2019

My name is Pamela Bähre-Ebensperger, I’m the offspring of German/Austrian immigrants to Chile, South America. I first started learning silversmith and goldsmith back in 2008, since then, I haven’t stopped!! I was a model since I was 14 (back to 1996) and then my career took an international path in 2001. Because of that, I was fortunate enough to live in many countries across the planet, impregnating my soul not only with original beauty but also with unique beliefs, habits, way of living, and all that could come in between…. I quit modeling when I was 30 years old (7 years ago) and it took me some time to let go of my “attachment” to my “babies” (a.k.a my jewelry), once I did (Thank Heaven!!!) I decided my contribution to this world will be one of beauty, power, and inspiration. Gemstones and metals not only tore energy, they transmit, transmute, enhance and even nullify it, therefore, but every piece of jewelry is also unique. It represents a state of Consciousness/ Being of the bearer, and as such, they serve either as Amulets or Talismans. This is the intention behind/ beside/ above and below my creations. In the Spirit of humility I can’t really say much about me, if there’s an opinion or judgment to be formed about me, it is my preference you do it yourself. The one thing I can say though, I that nothing makes me happier than life itself and that to be of service to all Beings and, especially, to the Greater Good, beats anything!!!!!!

Jewelry Making vol.2 (Master 2019 – Pamela)

This week I finally started to do other pieces, a pair of earrings and a ring. The purpose of the earrings is to practice piercing, and the ring is more of an engineering work, a ring with a gallery to set gemstones.

Esta semana finalmente he empezado a hacer otras piezas de joyeria, un par de aros y un anillo. El proposito de los aros es practicar el calado y el anillo es un trabajo mas de ingenieria, un anillo con galleria para engastar piedras.

I also started the stone setting process, not only practicing with the Bulin but actually drilling holes, trying stones, and doing the actual channel. So far I’m enjoying very much my learning process and I’m more and more comfortable with the tools.

Tambien he empezado el proceso de engastar piedras, no solamente practicando con el buril mas el proceso actual de hacer los huecos, probar las piedras y hacer los canales en el metal. Hasta el momento estoy disfrutando banstante el proceso de aprendizaje y cada dia me siento mas comoda con las herramientas.

The weather is nicer, warmer, so I’m feeling way better.

El tiempo esta major, un poco mas calentito, asique me siento bastante major.

Our last art visit was to a medieval/renaissance palace, I enjoyed that very much!! It gives me inspiration not only for jewelry projects but as a way of living and enjoying my life here in Firenze….

Nuestra ultima visita artistica ha sido en un palacio medieval/renaciente, la que he disfrutado mucho!!! Estas visitas me inspiran no solamente para projectos de joyeria, mas tambien como una forma de vivir y gozar mi vida aqui en Firenze….
