“I work with thousands of meters of threads to weave new ideas and dreams.”
Valentina Caprini (Verona, 1982) is a contemporary jewellery maker and teacher based in Florence, Italy.
After a Master Degree in Semiology, she completed in 2012 her BFA at the renowned Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence, where she was tutored by international artists like Peter Bauhuis and Ruudt Peters.
Her studies of conceptual jewellery continued with a course exchange in 2013 at the Estonian Academy of Arts, mentored by Tanel Veenre.
In the Academy she was so fascinated by the ancient Filigree technique, that she decided to specialize in this special way of working metal threads, learning directly from the artisans of Campo Ligure (Genova, Italy), one of the most important place in the world still active for the Filigree work.
It is possible to follow the “Red Thread” as you do with a compass: to find what you wish.
I work with thousands of meters of threads to weave new ideas and dreams. I use the ancient technique of Filigree to create something for the present.
