Historical Jewelry Workshop

 

Are you ready to jump into the past? Jewelry has played an important role in society since prehistoric times, not only as a status symbol but also as an amulet for protection, love and health. People of different social classes wore jewelry. An important development in goldsmithing technique and design took place during the ancient Roman and Greek periods. In this course you will have the opportunity to create your own piece of jewelry inspired by the ancient masterpiece. You will see that despite their age, these jewels are still relevant!
