Cheryl Jacobs, a local professional jeweller and post-secondary instructor, came in and shared some incredible skills with our students in Spring 2018. Featured here are several stone-setting projects done by Senior Jewelry students – beautiful work!
Our friend, mentor, Teacher-on-Call, and retired shop teacher, Graeme McFadyen, passed away in Spring 2018. Two students, L.M. and D.S. found a partially-completed bowl that Graeme had been working on, finished it, and wood-burned a memoriam by hand. This bowl will be on display in our shop to commemorate Mr. McFadyen, and all that he has done for the Comox Valley community over the past several decades. R.I.P.
In Spring 2018, we had a professional jeweller and college instructor, Cheryl Jacobs, come into our class to talk about local advanced education and entrepreneurship in jewelry-making (See the “Other Awesome Resources” section on this website to view her work). Cheryl shared new skills with us, and worked with students in both Junior and Senior Jewelry. Pictured here are a variety of cuffs designed by students – these projects incorporated leather work, riveting, and texturing and tempering metal.
