If I had the time, I would attend every edition of this seminar! It is impossible to understand the beauty and importance of this seminar other than by attending it; it’s a journey through history, stretching a century and a half, from mid-nineteenth century to modern days, one hundred and fifty years that have formed the rules and esthetics of modern jewelry and goldsmithing.
Knowing the history of jewelry is to understand today’s habits, to be able to interpret its dynamics and to predict future trends – these are analyses you cannot find on the web or in history books, because they belong to a wider scoop of reasoning that refers to both sociological observations and the general standards of taste which change from season to season.
This course is further enhanced by our instructor’s amazing selection of carefully chosen images.
