To celebrate the finished school year, here are three finished pieces from Mrs. Jennifer Braas' Jewelry and Metals courses.

In the Jewelry and Metals course students construct creative and original jewelry and metal pieces using basic hand metal skills. Construction techniques explored include sawing, filing, finishing, riveting, texturing, bending, and soldering of brass, nickel-silver, and copper.
Throughout the semester students are encouraged to explore new ways of thinking in creating unique metal forms as they study the history and techniques used to create them.
