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!
