A selection of unique and challenging Creative Projects (minimum 2 types of metal sweat-soldered together) made by senior students. That wolf/deer coin was especially tricky – way to go, everyone!
D.G. in Jewelry 11 went beyond his “eclipse” sweat-solder practise project and created these gorgeous earrings as a gift for his mom. Nickel silver and brass were used, as well as a sheet metal punch to get those perfect circles. Metals were sweat-soldered together, and his finishing touch was stamping a mountain design into both earrings. Beautiful work!
These extra projects were designed and created by Grade 11 student K.C. – WOW! Pitbull was sweat-soldered and had a small heart charm added with a jump ring, and both projects were intricately cut by hand using a jewellers’ saw.
Gorgeous work, K.C.!
These stunning pieces were designed and hand-cut by Senior Jewelry/Metalwork students. Canucks logo by D.G., Tiger by L.J., Cityscape (with tempered skyline and triple-sweat-solder!) by A.K., Lion by K.C., Humpback Whale by B.C., Mountain Biker by E.V.T., intricate Rose cut-out by R.M., Wolf by C.P., Lakers logo by Q.S., Air Jordan by T.B., Butterfly by V.N., and Cat by J.C.
Great work, everyone!
The 2019-2020 round of sweat-soldered creative projects in Jewelry 11/12 was STUNNING! Way to go, everyone!
Students choose a design, plan their layout, and choose a minimum of 2 different metals to use. All cutting is done by hand with a jewellers’ saw, and all sanding and finishing is done by hand as well. Great work!
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!
