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.!
Some incredible work by our Spring 2019 Senior Jewelry students! Featured here are a brass and a sterling version of the Russian Wedding Band (three interlocking rings), and a copper/silver sweat-soldered ring made by L.M. in Grade 11. Excellent work, everyone!
A few of the stunning, detailed pieces completed by students this year. These projects combine all skills learned in Jewelry in the first term: sweat soldering, piercing, ringmaking, and sanding/polishing.
J.L. in Grade 12 re-cast these beautiful matching gold pendants from a family heirloom: one for herself, her sister, and her mom. A great example of how significant & timeless jewelry-making can be. Great work, and good luck on your welding ACE-IT program, J.L.!
