Advanced Jewellery  – Second year of Alchimia’s programme:

In addition to the development and elaboration of advanced jewellery techniques, the second year programme is composed of conceptual exercises designed to provide students a more liberal understanding of jewellery. These excercises center around the creative dynamics and its language and focus on stimulating individual experimentation and research.
Lessons of freehand drawing and jewellery history complete the programme.

This gallery shows the final work of Alchimia’s second year students and you can see that material research is one of the central themes in this course.
