PREZIOSITÀ DI FRANCESCO PARMIGIANO
In the heart of Naples, Preziosità Officina Orafa manufactures gold and silver jewels with precious and semiprecious gemstones, all made by hand and following the Neapolitan goldsmith art. Preziosità is one of the few jewel stores that still preserves an open-plan workshop: customers can see the whole manufacturing process of jewels, from designing to packaging.
I’m a Neapolitan designer. I make handcrafted jewels using the ancient lost wax technique. Wax is the raw material I use: it is ductile and delicate and allows me to create embroideries and very detailed finishes. From wax, we move to fusion, which transforms wax models into silver, gold, bronze or brone, a hypoallergenic alloy of bronze and brass.
LUCIANO CAPOSSELA CREAZIONI
I have been running my studio in the centre of Calitri, a nice town in the province of Avellino, since 21 May 2008. I have developed and refined the lost wax casting technique over the years, in order to provide my customers with more services, besides design, modelmaking, and casting of gold, silver, and bronze goldsmith objects.
