Penko Bottega Orafa Artigiana

In his downtown Florence craft shop, master goldsmith Paolo Penko creates, alongside his wife Beatrice and children Riccardo and Alessandro, unique handmade pieces of jewelry, inspired by Florence’s great artistic and cultural heritage, some of which are shown at the Bargello Museum and Palazzo Pitti’s Silver Museum. His knowledge of age-old Florentine goldsmithing techniques allowed him, in 2008, to develop the innovative and exclusive “Penkato” method, which involves the use of the diamond-tipped cutter, of the chisel and engraving burin, in order to obtain a three-dimensional effect typical of the classic engraving technique.
