BRINGING OUT THE BEAUTY OF GEMSTONES
With the majestic fjord as a backdrop, Italian-born Giuseppe Benedetto—now firmly anchored in Quebec—has practised his craft for 40 ans. In his workshop, this tireless artisan will transform fine stones from Quebec and elsewhere before your very eyes, crafting them into jewellery, decorative or utilitarian objects and even original works of art. Watch him as he cuts, polishes and engraves stones such as amazonite, hypersthene and labradorite. Take part in some steps in the transformation and see the raw material close at hand. The sculptor is always seeking new shapes, creating gems from stones of the mineral world. Come admire, in the shop, works of art that combine sterling silver, gold, granite, glass, aluminum, bronze and steel.
