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.
Some incredible projects from our Spring 2022 Jewelry 11/12 crew! Fidget ring featuring copper enamelled flower with a handmade sterling rivet made by S.V., Sterling silver feathered earcuffs made by K.C. (and worn to their grad ceremony in June!), and a stone set pendant by W.J.. Great job, everyone!
Some selected self-directed Jewelry 9/10 projects from 2021-22! The sewing buttons and pendant (first 3 pictures) are done with a copper enamelling process (baking glazes onto thin copper). The stacked earrings, rainbow earrings, etc. were hand-formed and baked with polymer clay.
A.H. in Grade 12 designed and 3D printed the mold for this casting, then we made a sterling silver replica through our lost wax casting process.
This excellent piece was drafted and created by A.H. Excellent work!
Excellent work by L.J. and K.C. on the wand and snake rings! We also had students experiment with organic materials, which included these sterling silver cone and cedar branch pieces.
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!
This touching memorial ornament was commissioned by fellow teacher and counselor J.B. for her late father’s memorial tree. Students L.J. and K.C. took on this project and used letter stamps for the inscription, liver of sulfur to darken the letters, and some gorgeous wirework and an added heart charm hanging from the bottom. J.B. was incredible touched, and will cherish this gift. Thank you so much, L.J. and K.C. for being so keen to create this!
