Jewelry Making

Help me give my students the basic supplies to learn jewelry making and simple soldering!

My Students

Our school is a school for children on the autism spectrum. My students are excited to learn and work hard to do their best, but they come with a variety of learning needs and challenges.

Sculpture class can provide these students with an important opportunity to have valuable sensory input while having the opportunity to be creative and express themselves.

They enjoy working with clay but sometimes have difficulty with the fine motor skills they need to properly craft the projects. Having the extra tools will give them the confidence to build quality projects.

My Project

Help me give my students the tools we need to create jewelry. I would like my students to learn to craft functional objects as well as standard sculpture projects. Not only will these tools give them the opportunity to learn some basic jewelry making techniques, but they will also be able to master some basic soldering skills which can be used to repair everyday objects.

Students learn better when they are truly interested in the project.

Creating jewelry is something they really want to do.

Jewelry making will be great practice in paying attention to detail and will develop fine motor skills. These projects will be worn with pride and treasured for many years to come.
