where I was awarded a recognized diploma as a goldsmith.
I studied theoretical subjects like Technology, Gemmology and
the History of Jewels,
and practical ones like Jewellery Making and Design.
I designed and made my own jewels, having the possibility to work with these two subjects in parallel.
I also practice with soft and hard wax, and enamelling.
I attended a metal-forging workshop with Giovanni Corvaja in my second Year.

2003: I improved my creative qualities (collage, clay modelling, assemblage and composition with poor materials ) to understand better and to improve, through the practical and artistic work, the development of children's fantasy.
In the meantime, I started creating my first jewellery collections, using new and recycled materials.
This experience allowed me to experiment with various materials.and to start my own research.

trying to extend my possibilities to communicate with children.
