Discover our new course : the gouaché in high jewelry, the color — May 11, 2017

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 our new course : jewelry and “grand feu” enamelling — May 11, 2017

Discover the subtlety of applying the enameling art to a jewel. This class is conducted by Master Enameler, along with an instructor.

Enamel has existed since the invention of glass in ancient times. Accompanied by a Master Enameler, you will practice engraving the metal, crushing the enamel’s ingredients and then creating your own butterfly in champlevé and in plique à jour enamel.  Cooking your enamel work at very high temperature in the specialized oven will show you how and why this is called : « the art of ‘grand feu’ », because it is the fire, omnipresent in the enameler’s work, which fuses and transforms the material in order to reveal the color.
