francesca gabrielli using jewellers blow pipe for soldering
thanks to the associazione gioelli contemporaneo and the help of rita marcangelo at alternatives, i was able to find a studio to work in while staying in rome. due to the good graces and generous nature of francesca gabrielli of galleria 105art i was never without a place to work. francesca kindly opened her home and studio to me and about once a week, from september to december, we would get together to trade skills and ideas on contemporary jewelry and metals in the US and Italy.
