Fresco, meaning fresh in Italian, is the revered art of painting on fast-drying damp plaster with water based pigments.

I'm an artist and master jeweller, art lover and food passioned, I still haven’t decided yet what I’m going to do when I grow up, meanwhile (since 1982) I design jewels and I like teach jewelry-making. In 2013 I was appointed Master of Art by Tuscany Govt. I always like meeting new people, find new inspirations, sharing my knowledge... and telling stories about my work and my city. The ancient cuttlefish bone casting technique, already known by the Egyptians more than 2000 years ago, is one of my favorites is one of my favourites and it's easy to learn. The cuttlefish bone is easy to carve to make a mold that will be filled with melted silver. After my instuctions it will be your turn to project and carve the bone into the shape of your own jewel. You will make your personalized pendant or ring, choosing from the proposed models; I will help individually to reach the best result. In the mold just carved I will cast the melted silver and you'll see immediately the rough jewel.
