Giorgio Chiarcos born in 1957 in Udine; he was working in Friuli for years, before choosing Trento as his adopted town. He has his own studio in Trento since 1998.
He achieved a Diploma (A level) in Maestro d’Arte (Master of Art) in the precious metals Department of the Istituto Statale d’Arte “G. Sello” in Udine.
He devoted himself, as a creative and autonomous artist, to the creation of contemporary jewels. He continues creating unique pieces, looking into the most unaccustomed decorative effects in shape and material, alterning and mixing precious refinement and rough essentiality.
Giorgio Chiarcos developed a signature style based on the playful use of different materials, combined with gold and silver, enamel and iron.
