ancient Langobardian Jewels

The activity has been designed by the art teacher Alice Capriotti from Mondaini School (RN – Italy) and then reintroduced by the art teacher Marta Zannotti from Corinaldo (AN – Italy) who has shared all the pictures. Her students of 7th Grade (class IIA e IIB from “Foscolo” School) created these Longobardian jewels made of a dough of flour and salt.

The teacher Marta Zannotti tells us how they created the jewels: “After studying and observing the symbols of the medieval Langobardian art we created these jewels. First we designed the jewels on paper, at a scale of 1:1. Then we shaped the dough of flour and salt, using simple tools as rulers, little sticks and knives.

After drying in the oven the jewels has been colored with a layer of white paint and then with colors.

Eventually some beads and buttons has been imbedded into the surface with vinyl glue and the surface has been varnished”.
