Reviews on Studio Arrais

More information


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.

Areas of specialisation

In a market in constant evolution the necessity to propose innovative ideas and high-quality with costs and contained times of delivery has carried STUDIO ARRAIS, to take advantage themselves of the aid of a specialist company of fast prototype.

Through design CAD and technologies of fast prototyping, it is wanted to be arrived to fast solutions in order to realize the ideas, or leaving from a simple sketch on paper, or from a model in wax, design CAD 3D in prototype in RESIN or WAX.

Fast prototyping in resin (stereo lithography )

The prototyping in resin are without any doubts those which introduce the best characteristics about the proportions them and superficial.

This technology particularly is indicated in order to obtain optimal levels of details and for those details where it is important the precision about the proportions them and superficial.

The material allows the gumming of the prototypes with silicones rubbers with warmth (90 degrees) or cold.

Pieces in stereo lithography are easy paintable or opaque polishes that.

Fast prototyping in wax (modeller 3d)

The systems of fast prototyping SOLIDSCAPE, the wax are a thermoplastic material with identical characteristics to the traditional wax, guarantee a highest superficial definition and the total compatibility with the processes of metal casting to lost wax.

Silicones stamps

The preparation of rubbers represents a phase much delicate one of the production process, a stamp realized second specific criteria concurs to obtain a wax for perfect metal casting.

Through the support of a company or specialized laboratory, one offers to a service of silicones stamps from prototypes in resin and metal highly specialized differentiating the offer between silicones rubbers to warmth and cold.


For many years the Jewel Design School “ Studio Arrais” of Florence has been playing an important role in the training of jewellery’s young creators both Italian and foreigners.

The founder and director of this School, Luisella Arrais, always organizes jewel design courses an teaches at them, following the students ever since the first moment, jewel’s conception, to every next stages, graphical and computer planning (by using programs as Rhinoceros and Techgems) and the final prototype’s stage.
