The goal of this workshop is to help students learn the secret of brooch making through the cold-link technique used in French fine jewelry.
By using the cold-link technique, different materials can be held together as a whole, while maintaining a clear structure composed of various layers. They become one, yet at the same time they are still independent of each other. This technique can bring out a rich artistic expression.

Since the exquisite craftsmanship will be wholly reflected in a tiny piece of jewelry, each move requires good control of head, heart and hands. There is nothing just so-so or almost the same in fine jewelry making.

With his pursuit of high quality for the fine jewelry, Mr Jean-Marc Waszack shows the secrets of brooch making to the students, combining creation with exquisite craftsmanship, to complete a high-quality piece of work.

This workshop is very important to me.
I accepted only 4 students because it's a good but difficult journey until they feel pleasure. I only want to share my experience of titanium and cold-link technique with them.
I feel very excited.
