Što ćete raditi

We'll meet in a small pastry café, not so well known in the city, but where you can taste the best croissants in Florence! You will be my guests for a welcome breakfast!
Then we reach my small creative workshop (2 minutes walk) where I'll teach you, step by step, how to create a jewel using the technique of cuttlebone casting. This ancient technique, already known by the Egyptians more than 2000 years ago, 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 or creating a new one. I will help you individually to achieve the best result, and, in the mold just carved, I will pour the molten silver so you can immediately see your rough jewel which, once polished, will certainly be your best memory of Florence!
After the "hard" work will be my pleasure to invite you in a library coffee bar with a beautiful secret garden to chill with a glass of wine, prosecco or a soft drink...
…the best way to end a great experience!

The jewel you will create still needs some work to be finished. It will be ready to take away in the late afternoon or the following morning.
No special knowledge or skills are required.

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.

L'esperienza con Federico è stata per me un magnifico regalo di compleanno. La sorpresa di trovarmi dentro un laboratorio di oreficeria è stata enorme, ma mai avrei potuto immaginare di poter realizzare qualcosa con le mie mani. Federico è un artista eccezionale e un insegnante perfetto. Il laboratorio è pieno di opere splendide e di strumenti che permettono fare un salto nel passato. Anche la tecnica ha origini antichissime e consente di realizzare opere uniche meravigliose. Ovviamente grazie all'aiuto di Federico!

This was the best experience I have booked through Airbnb so far. As soon as I walked into the shop, I noticed a variety of handmade objects that showed Federico’s creativity and passion. He guided me with precious suggestions to help me make what I wanted to. After the experience Federico invited me to a nice cafe, which I really appreciated. I am impressed with the ring, and I would definitely recommend this experience to everyone!

Awesome, awesome program. I can not stress how much I enjoyed it. If you have time in Florence, definitely dont miss it! It is on the pricey side sure, but the quality you get is just amazing. I am really happy that I took and would definitely do it again any time. The best experience I had in Florence so far. Well worth every penny.

What a wonderful experience to make my own piece of jewellery in Florence. A lovely piece that I will have for a lifetime and a reminder of my time in this beautiful city. Federico was really helpful and kind. He was patient (which you need with me) and shared so much knowledge. It was certainly a fantastic experience and one I highly recommend. Anyone can do it! Thank you Federico for a great day.

The experience was unique! Federico was welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable... He shared information to really teach more than just passing certain information to serve the experience! I had a wonderful time that passed so quickly and I fully recommend this experience to anyone interested in jewelry! The experience was awesome and Federico is a unique person! I would definitely repeat this experience!

I had no idea or expectations when I turned up to the workshop as my husband booked it for us both to do something different. From the beginning to the end it was fantastic!! We learnt so much and we were both super amazed we could create silver jewellery! Federico was genuinely a lovely man, creative and passionate in his craft. We both felt incredibly welcome and would recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys something creative. For us, it was something we will talk about for a long time. And I will wear my pendant made by my husband with pride! - Vicky and David
