In Spring 2019, a few students decided to try their hand at creating some copper enamelling pieces, with some incredible results! Earrings hand cut, domed, and enamelled by C.H. and V.P. in Grade 11. Belt buckle (first attempt at enamelling this project!) done by V.P.
Sterling silver castings made by Senior Jewelry students. Students learn the entire process, including mounting and investing, casting with a centrifugal basin and crucible, and finishing and polishing.
Some incredible work by our Spring 2019 Senior Jewelry students! Featured here are a brass and a sterling version of the Russian Wedding Band (three interlocking rings), and a copper/silver sweat-soldered ring made by L.M. in Grade 11. Excellent work, everyone!
An assortment of creative projects designed and created by our Spring 2019 Senior Jewelry students. V.P. in Grade 11 wanted to try something a bit different, and riveted, shaped, and tempered the multi-layer flower pictured here. Also included are sweat-soldered projects, and a bestie puzzle pendant (one piece for each of six pals). Amazing work, everyone!
One of our intro projects in Senior Jewelry – bonus points if students can cut the whole shape out in one go! E.C. in Grade 11 used his to style up his lighter, and this other little fella looks pretty stealthy…
Grade 12 student C.B. designed this amazing table – he welded the base in our Jewelry/Metalwork class, and C.F. and W.G. in Senior Woodwork helped him out with the gorgeous cherry tabletop. Excellent work!
Grade 12 student J.B. wanted to try his hand at blacksmithing/forging! Sadly, the Highland shop no longer has a forge, but we made do with a torch. Awesome self-directed project – check out that detail!
Fall 2018 Senior Jewelry belt buckles! Students employ a variety of metalworking skills in this project, including welding, lathework, riveting, and cutting with a jeweller’s saw. Incredible work, folks!
