Hi Molly, There is “a” jewelry school in Florence, but I can’t
remember the name…it’s near Ponte Vecchio. I recommend that you
call the Florence Acedemy of Art, run by Americans, and ask for their
help. Also, there is a very active American consulate in Florence
which could be helpful, and lead you where you want to go. However,
why not see if there is a school you could attend in Arezzo, Italy.
which is the main city in Italy for jewelry production. This would
definetly be my choice…and you could visit Florence for a holiday.
There is a gentleman, Mr. Anthony Ditria, who is associated w/ G& S,
a jewelry manufacturing company there. He regulary reviews Orchid and
perhaps he would be so kind as to lead you to a school there. Be
patient for his response, for he often travels for his work. Mr.
Anthony Dirtia: G&S, firstname.lastname@example.org
