These extra projects were designed and created by Grade 11 student K.C. – WOW! Pitbull was sweat-soldered and had a small heart charm added with a jump ring, and both projects were intricately cut by hand using a jewellers’ saw.
This creative project by J.G. deserves special recognition! J.G. came up with this project concept in the hopes of shaping the manta ray to look as though it is moving through water. What an incredible job! J.G. cut all details out by hand with a jewellers saw, and delicately shaped the brass using small jewellers’ anvils. Gorgeous work, and I hope you are enjoying post-grad life, J.G.!
These students went above and beyond their set projects and challenged themselves to try new skills. Both sets of earrings were hand-cut with a jewellers’ saw (studs soldered onto the back). Beach stone pendants were chosen by students, and they designed their prong backing to hold the stone.
New students to Jewelry/Metalwork get to try their hand at using a jewellers’ saw (the bread and butter of most jewellers and fine metalsmiths!). Students choose their own design and cut all shapes out by hand. Incredible work!
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…
WOW! Most of the work featured here was the first time students ever used a jeweller’s saw! Students choose an image, transfer it to metal, and cut it all out by hand. Some students chose to try their hand at sweat-soldering two pieces together. Incredible work, everyone!
