Level: Certificate Course

Jewellery Manufacturing II - Intermediate Techniques

This course can be taken as a full Certificate course, or as individual modules.

Please note that all modules will need to be completed successfully to attain the Jewellery Manufacturing II - Intermediate Techniques Certification.

Course Breakdown:

Module: Duration:
Construction Techniques I 5 Days
Wax Model Making and Cuttlebone Casting 2 Days
Setwork I 3 Days
Repairs I 3 Days
Chain Making  3 Days
Design & Drawing (no CAD)* 5 Days

* Portfolio of sketches to be submitted prior to start of module

Aim:

The aim of this certificate course is to teach the student a variety of intermediate construction techniques in jewellery making. More basic forming techniques are covered as well as beginner casting. Jewellery Design and Drawing is also taught*. Cold joining techniques, some decorative wirework and surface texturing are also introduced.

*Note: This course does not teach the student “how to draw”. The student can take a basic art drawing and sketching class at their local art studio.

Prerequisites:

Successful completion of the Beginner Jewellery Techniques course. Admission to the course remains the prerogative of the facilitator. The student will be asked to submit finished pieces made after the beginner course for evaluation to determine skill level.

Outcome:

The student can apply jewellery making fabrication techniques to create simple to more complex jewellery pieces, for example ;Earrings, rings, pendants, bangles and chains. They understand the lost wax casting process, can prepare a wax carving for casting and are able to prepare and cast cuttlefish molds. They can set a faceted stone in a collet or claw setting made from scratch. The following basic repairs can be done: Ring Sizing 1 – 2 sizes larger. Ring Sizing 5 – 8 Sizes larger. Ring Sizing smaller. Re-shanking rings. Replacing Clasps. Replacing/repairing chain ends. Earring post repair/replace. Design Development and inspiration. Brainstorming. The elements of design. Creative concepts in design. Introduction to sketching techniques and hand rendering used in jewellery design.

Grading:

(only required for full certificate course)

All projects must be handed in for grading after completion of each module. The course facilitator and an external assessor (working in the trade) will grade each project and the average of the two marks will determine the final grade. A marking schedule with comments will be returned to the student with each project. Only students with a course average of 60% and above will receive a certificate of completion.

We reserve the right to change program content and materials when it becomes necessary. We reserve the right to withhold certification until full payment is received.
