Self-Directed Senior Projects

Some incredible projects from our Spring 2022 Jewelry 11/12 crew! Fidget ring featuring copper enamelled flower with a handmade sterling rivet made by S.V., Sterling silver feathered earcuffs made by K.C. (and worn to their grad ceremony in June!), and a stone set pendant by W.J.. Great job, everyone!

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.

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!
