Calling all orchidians for connections in Brazil!

Hey all! My name is Stefán, and I am from Iceland. I am currently studying gemology with GIA distance learning, and also goldsmithing in Iceland. As per the Icelandic system, I need to complete 2.5 years in the goldsmithing part of the trade school, and 1.5 years on a contract with a master goldsmith.

Now, since my wife is Brazilian and we travel there a lot, I would like to complete my contract in Brazil. It is possible to get a permission to complete the contract outside of Iceland if some conditions are met.

Here is where the power of ganoksin comes in, I would like to ask all of you if you have any good connections in Brazil. Even someone that could point me in the right direction or educate me how things work there.

With best regards, Stefán.
