Jewellery (Intermediate to Advanced Level)
You’ve already learned the basics such as soldering, sawing, filing and finishing silver jewellery in our beginner class. You loved the class and now your jewellery making imagination is limited only by a few more technical skills you need in your educational toolbox.
Now’s the time to learn sweat soldering, fusing, making findings and creating surface texture, among other skills. Some pretty breathtaking jewellery has been produced by students in this class, self-confessed newbies who once couldn’t tell the hot end of a blowtorch!
Studio tools and equipment have made it possible for students to incorporate a wide range of new techniques into their jewellery creations. Tuition fees include the use of all tools and equipment. Students will be required to purchase their own metals, which are available at the Centre.
Caitlyn Purcell is an artist and jeweller living in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Her jewellery explores an interpretation of Cape Breton culture; the colours, personalities, wonder and difficulties of everyday life. Simple compositions embody her analysis of the world around her. She pairs colourful cabochons with beach-combed cast materials and precious metals to make pieces that are at once messy, jagged, crisp and beautiful.
