Our Jewellery Design and Technical Drawing course in Florence lasts 4 or 12 weeks (8 hours per week). With the exception of those attending the monthly course, all students without a knowledge of technical drawing must attend a preparatory module consisting in 16 hours of technical drawing and design (included in the price).
The programme includes aspects of technical training and creative aspects at the conceptual stage of the jewel. Correct representation of the idea, education in taste and aesthetics through analysis of shape, development of creative skills. Analysis of technical constraints in rendering an idea through limits imposed by wearability and the client’s target market: designing one-off pieces or in series, modular jewels created in large and small series. Material technology and industrial and handcraft working, project economic analysis. Designing a set: necklace, earrings, brooch, bracelet and ring. Each project involves analyzing and selecting materials and a decorative technique. Graphics are drawn in pencil, water colors and tempera. There will also be lessons of computer-aided jewel design and the basics of gemology.
