The training process

Master in Jewelry Design

The jewel as an interpretation of the spirit of the time in which we live. The jewel as a mirror of a brand's identity. The jewel as an anticipation of the needs and expectations of the
consumers. These are the themes at the base of the IDI Master in Jewelry Design, an increasingly privileged area in the fashion, design and luxury sector.
Combining the study of the history of jewelery and the techniques used over the centuries for its realization with the analysis of materials, gems and new execution techniques, the
student will be able to approach the goldsmith laboratory to understand how a concept develops, to the point of making it a prototype. During the Master in Jewelry Design the workshop practice becomes part
an integral part of the training course, as the final goal is also the development of concrete skills in jewelery making. At the same time the student will take a solid methodology
design that will allow him to develop a strategic planning thought.
This theoretical-practical path will be accompanied by the development of graphic skills, through the use of analogical and digital tools and exercises of two-dimensional representation and
three-dimensional, to ensure an effective presentation of the product or collection. During the Master in Jewelry Design we will also discuss the basic principles of marketing, to encourage the
proposing the finished product on the market. The Master will consist of a series of theoretical and practical lessons, in full-immersion mode, in the classroom and in the laboratory, since the objective is training a complete professional in the field of jewelery design and production.
