Video: A goldsmith at work

Here Giovanni Corvaja, a contemporary jeweller, demonstrates a series of techniques working with gold.

In this short film preview, Giovanni rolls a sheet of gold from an ingot, decorating a surface using a fine drill, drawing hair-thin wires of gold and creating beautiful pieces of jewellery.
