 Mosaikashop is proud to host Fulvio Di Gloria who will teach the fine art of micro mosaics for jewelry 

fulvio_collage

This micro mosaic class is unique and the only one currently available in the tradition for the production of high end genuine Roman and Venetian micro mosaics jewelry. You will create a micro mosaic pendant with a silky smooth surface to the touch. There are barely spaces in between each tesserae so that every detail in the design composition can be seen. This technique makes the jewelry very durable.

This class will consist of 2 Projects

Project 1:

Students will produce a composition exercise measuring 1cmX1cm of a geometrical design as a first exercise, to get the feel of the technique.

Project 2:

Students will make a pendant in a silver base. For learning purposes and time restraint you will be given a choice of design: geometrical, letter of the alphabet, or flower.

Remember this course is specially formulated to teach you a specific technique!

Take advantage of this unique opportunity.

Mosaikashop is passionate about bringing you the best from around the world!
