Chatching up is a new IGTV series hosted by Metalaid, a volunteer-run journalistic hub devoted to support and promote contemporary jewellery practice in Canada.

It gives us a uniquely personal insight into their world, and includes some great studio tours!

About the artist:
Dino Giannetti is a second-generation master goldsmith and 18Karat Studio + Gallery's in-house artisan. At the age of 14 years old, Dino grew a passion for goldsmithing from working alongside his father, Tullio, who became a master goldsmith after emigrating from Italy in 1950. His passion became so apparent at the age of 15, that he went to Italy to apprenticed under another master goldsmith, Armando Ruggeri. With all the knowledge bestowed upon him by Armando, Dino returned to Canada to turn their home-based jewellery business into a store. An award-winning jewellery designer, Dino finds inspiration in rare and exotic gemstones sourced directly from both Canadian and internationally renowned lapidarists - designing each piece around the unique stones themselves.
