Bruno Pedonesi Goldsmith

For over 50 years, "Bruno Pedonesi" is synonymous of handmade jewelry in Lucca.

The goldsmith tradition of our laboratory began in the '60s when a young Pedonesi Bruno begins this activity by learning the various tricks by expert craftsmen.
Over the years the work has changed as well as the management of the laboratory from father to son, but the passion and the importance of handmade work remained unchanged over time and have always characterized our creations.
From the initial local in via S. Giorgio, inside of a small laboratory, in 1986 the business moved to its present location in Piazza del Palazzo Dipinto, very close to the birthplace Giacomo Puccini's house and the beautiful Piazza San Michele.
Pedonesi Stefano was born in Lucca in 1975.
Since 1994 he is a goldsmith that makes repairs or creations of new objects in gold or silver, both classical and contemporary often in unique pieces combined precious metal with natural stones and using techniques ranging from cuttlebone casting to lost wax casting.
Since 1999 he has the management of the laboratory and, thanks to his passion for informatic technology, he created and manages the website online since 1997 with the new section of E-Commerce opened in 2006.
