To access this course it is not necessary to have drawing skills: the whole program will be carried out starting from basic notions, within everyone’s reach.

The use of watercolors for the realization of jewellery rendering is a refined technique which requires time and patience, but ensures exciting results and offers future designers the opportunity to show their customers a realistic preview of how the object will be made .

LAO provides some schematics of technical designs (rings, earrings, pendants, bracelets, necklaces, etc.) that participants will have to learn to color (render) using the techniques learned.

Different topics such as metal surfaces (silver and gold in different colors), and with different treatments (matte, polished, satin) and shape (flat/bombed/curved) will be addressed. One also learns how to represent gems realistically.

CAD – CAD.EN

2 classes of 3 hours per week.
Duration: each cycle is 60 hours (6 hours for 10 weeks), but shorter durations can be accessed subject to availability of places.

CAD (Computer Aided Design) offers possibilities that until very recently were unthinkable for jewellery design and is extremely useful not only for designers but also for jewellers and model-makers.

Technical design – DIS.EN

3 classes of 3 hours per week.
Duration: each cycle is 90 hours (9 hours for 10 weeks), but shorter durations can be accessed subject to availability of places.

This course introduces students to the practical aspects of technical design, freehand design and the praxis of designing a piece of jewellery.

The course opens with students using a type of technical projection called Orthogonal Projection, which allows the designer to explore their vision from every side, every angle. We then move on to the techniques of Axonometric projection, which is the three-dimensional representation of the piece of jewellery, as if it were being seen in a photograph.

These techniques will allow us to make accurate freehand designs of our drafts. We will look at various themes in jewellery design with the aim of understanding various working methods, different ways of constructing jewellery and different ways of studying its components. The various design techniques will be taught from the absolute basics, on the assumption that the student has never designed before. With time their designs will become more and more sophisticated.

Gemology – GEM.EN

2 classes of 3 hours per week.
Duration: each cycle is 48 hours (6 hours for 8 weeks), but shorter durations can also be accessed subject to availability of places.

Through studying the tools and techniques employed in gemology, students will be able to analyze and recognize the main precious and semi-precious stones in the jewellery sector.

The module introduces the student to the world of precious and semi-precious stones through analyzes of their origins, their market and symbolic value, and the history of how they have been traditionally worked. Ethical questions around the usage and mining methods of these stones also form an integral part of the course.

History of jewels – STGIO.EN

2 classes of 3 hours per week.
Duration: each cycle is 48 hours (6 hours for 8 weeks), but shorter durations can also be accessed subject to availability of places.

The course explores the history of jewellery, from ancient civilizations up to today’s collections. It investigates the historical, social and artistic factors that have shaped the evolution of jewellery, looking at historical production and the jewellers behind it.

The aim of the module is to equip students with the tools needed to understand the background of today’s jewellers. Students should gain confidence with the critical terminology around jewellery, through producing visual and textual analyzes.

History of the contemporary jewels – CONST.EN

2 classes of 3 hours per week.
Duration: each cycle is 48 hours (6 hours for 8 weeks), but shorter durations can also be accessed subject to availability of places.

This course treats the history of contemporary jewellery as the history of a valid, independent means of artistic expression.

It begins at the end of the nineteenth century and finishes with today’s jewellery, looking at the central figures in the jewellery world during this period. It explores jewellery from open, experimental, ever-changing perspectives: besides bringing materials from other art forms into a jewellery context, we will see how thought on the meaning and function of jewellery has become increasingly critical, especially from the mid-twentieth century onwards.

The course will also focus on the connections between artists working and experimenting at the same time and will linger on the most important trends of each period to contextualize them as much as possible.

Culture of the jewel project – CULT.EN

2 classes of 3 hours per week.
Duration: each cycle is 48 hours (6 hours for 8 weeks), but shorter durations can also be accessed subject to availability of places.

This course offers students a holistic introduction to the world of jewellery today through a variety of formal and cultural interpretations.

The course also offers access to a global network of information.

Through mastering the vocabulary and themes of the subject, students are stimulated to individual critical thought, which will help them to develop their own personal style in their work.

By the end of the year, the student will:

  • be comfortable with the essentials in research methodology and project development.
  • be able to produce a complete individual and original project that unites all the technical and theoretical skills acquired during the course.


The course includes instructions for the use of Instagram and Pinterest, with the aim of helping the student create a professional profile, if they do not already have one.

Fashion and luxury marketing – MARK.EN

2 classes of 3 hours per week.
Duration: each cycle is 48 hours (6 hours for 8 weeks), but shorter durations can also be accessed subject to availability of places.

This course offers a contemporary view of luxury marketing to the student who is studying an ancient, storied craft. The course will deal with jewellery marketing strategies and the evolution of the market.

Through analyzing the 4 P’s of traditional marketing and the 4 C’s of integrated marketing, students will learn to promote and commercialize their own products, orchestrating every stage from design to profit.

The market strategies of various high jewellery brands will be analyzed, from product development to promotion and sales, with particular attention to the emotional aspect that the great luxury brands use in their (personalized) marketing. Students will also look at the importance of the target market and unpick the various business techniques that are specific to the luxury goods sector.

CAD.WE1 Introduction to Rhino3D for Goldsmithing. Online Course 

This course focuses on creating rings and pendants from non-complex shapes using a range of commands, including creating and  modifying curves, moving, rotating, scaling, copying, and subdividing shapes, using the 1-track sweep technique and utilizing  control points. 

CAD.SE1 Introduction to Rhino3D for Goldsmithing. Evening or daily course 

This course focuses on creating rings and pendants from non-complex shapes using a range of commands, including creating and  modifying curves, moving, rotating, scaling, copying, and subdividing shapes, using the 1-track sweep technique and utilizing  control points. 

ZBR.WE 3D modelling with ZBrush 

First approach to sculptural modelling using ZBrush, a computer graphics program that combines modelling, texturing and painting in 3D and 2.5D. ZBrush uses technology that stores information about the lighting, colour, material and intensity of all displayed  objects. In this introductory course open to all, the student will be guided to the creation of a form with which he or she will build a  ring and a bracelet. 

RE.1 Diamond colouring 

Watercolour rendering of brilliant diamond cut. 

RE.2 Ink pen sketches and renderings 

In this workshop fast representation techniques are applied with the use of ink pens. Starting from different representation techniques  for flat surfaces, curved, cylindrical and conical surfaces, we move on to representation of cabochons and faceted gemstones, pave,  pearls and other materials. The aim of the workshop is to give the student the tools and methods to realize monochromatic jewellery  drawings through fast chiaroscuro” ink pen techniques that will give an immediate visual impact. 

RE.3 Rendering with markers and watercolor pencils. 

In this workshop representation techniques using alcohol and water-based markers and watercolor pencils are covered and  employed. Starting from different representation techniques of flat, curved, cylindrical and conical surfaces, both polished and satin finished, of precious metals. Then we move on to drawing of precious stones: cabochons and faceted stones,  

semi-precious stones, pearls, corals and other materials. The aim of the workshop is to provide the student with the tools and  methods to realize jewellery renderings through the use of fast but visually striking representation  

RE.4 Digital rendering with photoshop, illustrator and procreate.  

In this workshop, digital representation techniques using Photoshop and Illustrator software, and the Procreate application are illus trated and employed. As usual, we start with representation techniques of flat, curved, cylindrical and conical surfaces, both polished  and satin-finished, of precious metals. Then we move on to digital representation of precious stones: cabochons and faceted stones,  semiprecious stones, pearls, corals, pavés of diamonds. The advantages of digital rendering and the possibility of modifying the design  and adapting it to different requirements in a very short time are high lighted. The aim of the workshop is to train the student with the  tools to realize renderings through the use of digital jewels illustrations and painting, which is highly fast, dynamic and expressive.  

EN.1 Segnatura  

Exercises on metal sheet and introduction to the art of segnatura. Drawing, writing with marks, and delineating geomet ric shapes on a metal sheet. 

EN.2 Engraved texture 

The course aims to teach drawing and engraving with a burin to create different textures and patterns. Starting with basic graphic ele ments like simple lines, participants will learn how to create more complex motifs, up to ornaments and abstract compositions. They will  also learn how to imitate natural surfaces, studying the structures to create effects such as bark or wood, animal skin patterns, or stone  surfaces. 

ENJF.1 Introduction to engraving on jewellery 

After learning the burin preparation technique and becoming familiar with the tools, participants will start engraving on  copper sheets and silver rings. 

ENJF.2 Background, granite, and silk on jewellery 

Engravings on a silver leaf, using backgrounds, granite, silk, and engraving veins to enhance the natural effect. Granite is used to create a  homogeneous background that contrasts with subsequent shiny engravings, enhancing them

ENJF.3 Cursive writing on metal plate  

The objective of the course is to teach the engraving of names in English cursive on flat plates. This course is beneficial for both goldsmiths  and engravers. It can be used to sign one’s own work by using a metal plate, ‘write’ names, initials, and dates with a graver, etc.  

INPR1.F Setting with prongs (solitaire or trilogy)  

The prong setting is the most commonly used for solitaire and trilogy rings, and it enhances the beauty of the stone. Participants will learn  how to set brilliant-cut round stones on silver rings and other semi-finished products. 

INBS.F Setting with different-shaped settings 

The stone is set in the previously prepared seat (setting). The metal collar is fixed on the stone with a chisel or a hammer. For the exercis es, semi-finished products with settings of various shapes will be used, and participants will learn how to set faceted stones of different  cuts (round, square or princess) and round cabochon-cut stones. 

INSG.F Flush setting 

The technique of flush setting, in which the stones are not covered by the metal at all, makes the stones appear larger than they actually  are. This type of setting is particularly suitable for small round stones, and is often used for “light points” and in tennis bracelets. During  the course, exercises will be carried out on silver or bronze plates and semi-finished products. 

INBI.F Channel setting 

Channel setting is one of the most common types of setting: this type of mounting gives beauty to stones arranged in a row next to each  other. It is a type of setting suitable for not large stones, usually all of the same size. The most used cuts for this type of setting are square  and baguette, but excellent results are also obtained with round stones. 

INSGR.F Bead setting 

This technique partly recalls the prong setting, but the use of special mills and gravers makes it very different in realization and suitable  for objects to be produced in series or simple on unique objects. The setter obtains small prongs by cutting the base metal and shaping the  metal blocks according to their own taste. 

SMAF.1 Transparent enamels with silver and gold foils 

The course will demonstrate how to achieve bright and beautiful colours directly on copper using sifted transparent enamel powders in  combination with sheets of silver and gold on flat or gently formed copper surfaces. Participants will explore methods to enhance depth,  complexity, details, and maximum transparency, gaining essential information and skills for transparent enamelling and achieving a wide  range of colours

SMAF.2 Liquid enamel  

Students will be guided through exercises that teach them how to understand the material and how it will respond to certain situations.  The students will then be asked to begin layering techniques and application methods associated with liquid enamels, pushing the bound aries of what they are learning. Alternative materials will be incorporated into the enamel and firing process. The enamels will be kiln and  also torch fired ( this depends if we may bring one torch into the studio), offering more variation to the surface of the enamel. Exploring the  possibilities students will be expected to present a collection of their research as demonstration through several pieces with appropriate  documentation of their processes. Advanced students will also be asked to develop one process into a completed piece that may be wear 

able or sculptural. 

SMA.WE Fire enamels, wet enamel, dry enamel, champlevé. 

The course aims to provide the student with the knowledge of the main techniques of fire enamel applied to metal and in particular on jew ellery objects. Practical lessons and exercises. Dry enamel, wet enamel and champlevè.

PEARL Stringing pearls 

The course involves the creation of a pearl necklace from start to finish. Participants will learn the fundamental basics of threading and  how to use the necessary materials for this art. The course is aimed at those who, for creative, commercial, and hobbyist purposes, want  to learn this technique
