WHO WE ARE
ARTKIMIA - Art & Jewelry Studio is the official distributor for the brand's products Art Clay Silver, in Romania. Artkimia is the first jewelry school in Romania that introduced the innovative material metal clay, the concept and jewelry certification courses using this revolutionary material.
Along with this concept Artkimia also introduced courses on: keum boo (gilding, using the Korean keum boo technique), enameling with vitreous powders (cloisonne, basse-taille, champlevé, plique-à-jour), the mix of metals, through the Japanese technique new mokume gane, glass fusion and its integration into the jewel, the use of alternative materials, such as its plastic UV resin, in jewelry and others.
