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!
An assortment of creative projects designed and created by our Spring 2019 Senior Jewelry students. V.P. in Grade 11 wanted to try something a bit different, and riveted, shaped, and tempered the multi-layer flower pictured here. Also included are sweat-soldered projects, and a bestie puzzle pendant (one piece for each of six pals). Amazing work, everyone!
WOW! Most of the work featured here was the first time students ever used a jeweller’s saw! Students choose an image, transfer it to metal, and cut it all out by hand. Some students chose to try their hand at sweat-soldering two pieces together. Incredible work, everyone!

Some students, including K.M. in Grade 10 (the amazing orca) chose to try their hand at sweat-soldering two pieces together. Incredible 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.
It’s been a busy year here in the Highland shops! After a hiatus to complete a Masters degree, I’m (finally) updating our website. Thank you for your patience!
Here are some incredible pieces from our Fall 2018 Senior students – all pieces are soldered with 2 types of metal, and hand-cut with jeweller’s saws by students. Excellent work everyone!
Gorgeous work done by Jewelry 11/12 students. Each student chooses their image and metal varieties, and all cutting is done by hand with a jeweller’s saw. Pieces are then sweat-soldered, sanded, and polished.
Check out the incredible metalwork skills shown by M.B., K.S., and L.C. Each student chooses a design and carefully cuts it out by hand with a small jeweller’s saw. The patience required can be huge, and these students nailed it! (M.B. soldered her copper and nickel silver pieces together to create the husky). Great work!
