Steel Tempered Pendants

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.

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!

Ring-making

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.!
