Golnar Gorgin

I am Golnar Gorgin. For the time being, I design and make jewelry in Florence, Italy. I was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1980. I started my academic studies in the field of Industrial Designing, at the Faculty of Fine Arts at Tehran University in 2000. Through some teamwork at the university, I developed a passion in jewelry designing and enjoyed the opportunities that this field offers in terms of materials and modes of production.

 My studies and experiences in Iran came to an end by an exhibition of my works, held at the Visual Arts Gallery in the Faculty of Fine Arts. In search for new opportunities and to get more acquaintance with today’s world of fashion design, I left Iran for Florence, Italy in 2005. 

In Florence, I attended a course in jewelry design in University of Florence. Also, as a part of my apprenticeship scheme, I joined SusannaDeCarlo Company and I have been collaborating with, for two years. Currently, I'm attending a master's degree in Design here in Florence.
