My name is Laura Forte. I was born in Copertino(LE) on 20th April 1982. I studied in Lecce at the Applied Goldsmith's Art School. I went on further studies at the Training State Company IRIGEM in Rosa'(VI) getting a certificate as a qualified goldsmith jewelsetter. I attended a lot of "stages" such as: "GRAZER Jewels", the prestigious jeweller's shop in the heart of Bassano del Grappa town and "MF" by Fernando Bonamigo a famous goldsmith's workshop in Rosa', developing my own work in goldsmith'art and moulding on the bench. I attended a gemmology training course. I worked for the "TRE ESSE" jewels, a goldsmith firm in Nove(VI). In 2005 I set up my own workshop in the town I was born, where I have been working until now as goldsmith jewelsetter.
