Junior jewellers saw projects, Part 2

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!

Junior Jewellers Saw projects, Part 1

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, including K.M. in Grade 10 (the amazing orca) chose to try their hand at sweat-soldering two pieces together. Incredible work, everyone!

Creative Projects

It’s been a busy year here in the Highland shops! After a hiatus to complete a Masters degree, I’m (finally) updating our website. Thank you for your patience!
Here are some incredible pieces from our Fall 2018 Senior students – all pieces are soldered with 2 types of metal, and hand-cut with jeweller’s saws by students. Excellent work everyone!

jeweller’s saw awesomeness!

Check out the incredible metalwork skills shown by M.B., K.S., and L.C. Each student chooses a design and carefully cuts it out by hand with a small jeweller’s saw. The patience required can be huge, and these students nailed it! (M.B. soldered her copper and nickel silver pieces together to create the husky). Great work!

Creative pieces by Grade 9/10 students

These Grade 9/10 students wanted to try something a bit more advanced for their pendant projects! After designing and cutting out an image by hand with a jeweller’s saw, each student sweat-soldered their piece onto a different type of metal. Incredible work, everyone: I am so impressed!
