F.M. in Grade 12 worked SO hard to create this incredible and complex sterling silver ring set with a Tiger’s Eye stone. What an amazing achievement! All the best on your welding program out east, and beautiful work on this project.

2021-22: Creative Rings
2020-21 Creative Rings!
An awesome mix of twisted rings (including one with sterling wire), an interlocking sterling silver ring (first pic), and stamped and offset-soldered rings.
Creative Rings – Senior Jewelry
Senior students K.C. and D.G. created these self-directed ring projects. K.C. annealed, twisted, and forged the silver band ring and cut out the “V” ring with a jewellers’ saw. D.G. took on a challenge with this brass “ball ring”, where spheres were created by purposefully melting small pieces of brass wire, then soldering them onto a band. Excellent work!
Awesome custom-carved lost wax castings!
Early 2020 Grade 12 student B.G. really took to casting, and used his artistic skills to custom-carve his own sterling silver skull ring (in-process and completed photos here). We decided to finish off his ring with a liver-of-sulfur patina to give it a darker sheen, and it turned out SO good!
Also pictured is a second casting hand-carved by B.G. (heart inside a triangle). Excellent work, and I hope post-grad life is treating you well!
Custom Lost Wax Casting
This project was lovingly hand-carved and shaped by A.K., a top student in Jewelry 10 in Fall 2019! Cast out of sterling silver, this project featured geometric angles created with a file and sandpaper, as well as a carved centre detail. Excellent work, A.K.!
Students in both Junior and Senior Jewelry get to try their hand at ring-making, and create progressively more challenging projects. These students decided to try their hand at a ‘braided’ and intro to ‘filigree’ ring, where they up-cycled old electrical wire and annealed with a torch as they shaped it. Excellent work, A.K. and L.J.!
WOW! V.P. in Grade 11 tried her hand at this intermediate ring project, and it turned out beautifully. Advanced skills included wire wrapping, multiple complex solders, and shaping.
