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.

Creative Rings – Senior Jewelry
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!
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.!
WOW! V.P. in Grade 11 tried her hand at this intermediate ring project, and it turned out beautifully. Advanced skills included wire wrapping, multiple complex solders, and shaping.
