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.
D.G. in Jewelry 11 went beyond his “eclipse” sweat-solder practise project and created these gorgeous earrings as a gift for his mom. Nickel silver and brass were used, as well as a sheet metal punch to get those perfect circles. Metals were sweat-soldered together, and his finishing touch was stamping a mountain design into both earrings. Beautiful work!
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.
Incredible work, folks!
K.G. in Grade 11 went above and beyond set projects in 2019 and created these gorgeous wire-work silver earrings. All shaping and soldering was done by hand, and they turned out beautifully. Excellent work!
Beautiful work by C.S. in Grade 11: Highland Jewelry Shop’s first set of cast earrings! Sterling feathers with handmade jump rings.
