This one year training will allow participants to master a range of jewellery making techniques and prepare them for the National Diploma of “CAP Art et Techniques de la Bijouterie-Joaillerie”, in Jewellery Making.
The jeweller creates, transforms and repairs jewellery in precious metal (gold, silver, platinum). Work is carried out in two stages: conceptualization and fabrication. Working closely with the client, the jeweller will produce detailed designs of the jewellery. It will be followed by the fabrication of the jewellery piece in metal directly or by wax modelling and casting processes. The jeweller will select the gemstones and prepare the metal for their placement. The jewellery will be then passed on to the stone setter and to the polisher. The jeweller can either work for a manufacturing company workshop or as an independent craftsman.
The jeweller must have a precise, thorough and artistic sensibility in line with the client preference. This enables the jeweller to reproduce and repair antique jewellery as well as fabricate own creations.
