T and B Artisans
We are Luis Todino and Liliana Bollani. We make handmade jewellery, mostly from silver but we also use other materials, such as copper, iron, steel, aluminium, hard stones, wood and acrylic. We make individual and unique pieces and small collections of pieces. We have been practising this craft for more than 35 years.
We began in Argentina, exhibiting and selling at handicraft exhibitions organised by Buenos Aires city council. In 1977 we moved to Spain and opened a workshop there. We were regularly invited to exhibit and sell at handicraft exhibitions in cities such as Barcelona, Madrid, Valladolid, Zaragoza, Toledo, Getxo, Vitoria and San Sebastian.
Barcelona: 1977-2003 artisans licence issued by "Generalitat de Catalunya" (Spanish regional administration).
1991-1993 lecturers in jewellery making at the Cardona School of Crafmanship, Barcelona, Spain.
After this we obtained qualifications to train teachers in jewellery making, issued by the Spanish Ministry of Work.
In 2003 we moved to Genoa, Italy, where we opened another workshop, and spent 8 years designing, producing and selling our unique pieces of jewellery.
In 2011 we moved to England and have opened a workshop in Kettering, Northamptonshire.
