In jewelry, creation is the result of a team effort, for which the design is the first step. The gouaché is a technically detailed rendering which will guide all the different « hands » who will participate in the creation of the jewel. The mockup maker, the jewelers, the gemologists, the polishers, the setters: all will refer back to it during every single stage. The gouaché prefigures the jewel, both in volume and in color. In this course you will discover how the designer must perfectly express the association of color with light. From cabochon shape to faceted cuts, you will apply the techniques for gouaché which show the liveliness of the real stones.
Discover the subtlety of applying the enameling art to a jewel. This class is conducted by Master Enameler, along with an instructor.

Harumi Klossowska de Rola presents her new collection of jewels and objects, from January 23 to February 1, at L'École des Arts Joailliers, in an exhibition named "Retour d'expédition".
Harumi Klossowska's jewels are animals which are at the same time alive and petrified, mysterious an familiar. A world in which creatures spring into existence, out of wood and gold, dreamed up between Europe and Japan, tamed by the artist's mind, and then entrusted to the meticulousness of several Swiss French artisans. These works are unique, wild and delicate.
