I apologize in advance as I didn’t see the original post so I don’t
know the exact reason the question was asked, or who it was from.
However, in case it may help, here a few other options for jewelry
schools in Brazil, mostly private I believe:
There’s the IBGM, Instituto Brasileiro de Gemas e Metais Preciosos.
As far as I know they are not a “school” but they do offer classes
and within the field :
Again, as far as I know, the IBGM also provides “Tecnology in
Jewelry Design” classes at least at this University:
Universidade Luterana do Brasil (ULBRA)
Av. Farroupilha, 8001 Bairro San Jose
Canoas/ Rio Grande do Sul (RS) - Cep 92425-900
Fone: (51) 3477 4000 - Fax: (51) 3477 1313
E-mai: coordjoias at ulbra dot br
In Novohamburgo, also in the south, there’s also a University which
offers metalsmithing classes:
Av. Dr. Maurocio Cardoso, 510 - Bairro Hamburgo Velho - Novo
Hamburgo - RS - CEP 93510-250
A more design oriented school is:
Instituto Europeu de Design ltd.
Rua Maranhao 617
Higienpolis - San Paulo

I don’t know more details of any of the above, but I hope this can
be of some help.
You can also always write to the editors of this Brazilian jewelry
web-portal for more as well:
I write a monthly column for them called “Tecnicas e Dicas”
