Techniques used to make a piece of jewellery
The sketch's idea will be copied on tracing paper in order to be transfered on the metal sheet (silver, copper gold).
Once all the elements are ready , a long, meticulous and precise manual work will begin ( Drilling, soldering , forging , heating , filing , hammering , engraving ..)
By repeating several times the same steps, the metal becomes dirty, dark with soldering residues, it is deformed and heated, it must be cleaned with traditional tools every time a sheet of metal is added and solder on it.
The jewel is polished first manually and at last with a special polishing hand machine to make a glossy or a matt finish .
Last stage, the jewelry is stamped with a 925 punch to certify the purity of the silver , and punch "gs " or " germes " to certify that the has been created by Saveria Geronimi and comes from germes workshop
The stages of making a jewel is a minimum of 3 hours work and can be up to 10 hours depending on the difficulty of the design and the different cuts needed.
