Work with the Paduan-trained Italian master Alberta Vita to create jewelry.
Use different modeling materials such as wood, paper, wax, copper, brass, various stones and more to create a model. Then complete the piece with classical goldsmithing techniques (cutting, filing, soldering, folding and polishing); the accent lies on contemporary design.

Alberta Vita was born at Matelica in Italy and received her Masters degree in Arts with an emphasis on metals and goldsmithing from the Selvatic Art Istitute in Padua, Italy, where she would later teach herself. She was educated by Francesco Pavan and Giampaolo Babetto, on whose tradition she built her career. She has since been working both as an artisan and artist perfecting her personal style in contemporary jewelry design, and as a teacher. Ms Vita's creation of the moving gem setting is unique and renowned in the world of jewelry design.Click here to view other classes taught by this instructor.
