Luisa Arrais Biography
Luisella Arrais was born in Cagliari, Sardinia.
In 1978 she decided to move to Florence and live there: it was love at first sight.
In 1980 she did a school of art “ ISA Istituto Statale D’Arte” in Florence and addressed her interest in jewellery section.
She did this school for 2 years and she achieved the Diploma of Art’s Master with honours.
During her education, she went on specializing herself in artistic topics; and she did the Free School of Knot of the Academy of the Arts for one year, where she had the opportunity to improve her pictorial veins.
At the same time, she did an Assembler Making Course for two years, but nevertheless she has been always more interesting in jewel design than in other specialisations.
For this reason she decided to do a Jewellery Design Course, as well.
Awarded all these specializations, she began to work as jewellery designer, after a short period of intense activities as designer and model of wax.
In 1995, she started to teach Jewel Design in particular at Art Fuji Studio in Florence and in other Jewel Schools, too.
In 2000 she decided to open her own Jewellery Design’s Studio, called “ Studio Arrais”
Her typology of teaching jewel’s design is winning, because it is a specific and short course regarding this topic in contrast with courses of other School of Art that usually are longer and more generic than her own courses.
Thanks to this experience in teaching and in sorting out many courses, Luisella Arrais has been often able to give her own students, coming from every part of the world, the possibility to win many competitions, so that Studio Arrais is recognized as leader of teaching jewel’s design.
At the present Luisella Arrais organizes a lot of exhibitions about her own student’s passionate artistic works (this year at Cellai Boutique Hotels in Florence).
Students are so enthusiastic of this initiative, that they are going on taking part in it and they are giving an important contribute in jewel design’s innovation.
