Copper Enamelling & Polymer Clay
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.
2021-22: Domed & Twisted Rings
2021-22: Pewter Castings
2021-22: Jewellers Saw Pendants!
2020-21 Pewter Castings!
Some students went extra creative and used epoxy resin (we use EcoPoxy with added pigmentation and sometimes GLITTER). Nice work, y’all!
2020-21 Jewellers Saw Projects
These Jewelry 9/10 students in Fall 2019 hand-carved their chosen design into plaster blocks to create their pewter casting projects. Great work!
Self-Directed Jewelry 9/10 Projects
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!
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.!
