Please see note regarding program-specific fee for Jewellery and Metals.
I’ve always been confident working with my hands. After completing the Jewellery and Metals program, I went on to complete a certificate in Goldsmithing and Silversmithing.
The Jewellery program really seems to create an atmosphere of co-operation and generosity. Everyone helps everyone else and there is always someone willing to lend a hand or an ear, or give advice. I think it’s because creative minds need a sense of community and a feedback loop that can be relied upon. I also liked that the program focused on teaching relevant skills and techniques used in the industry.
Since graduation, I’ve become an entrepreneur, making custom pieces for clients. I recently made a piece for Princess Anne, commissioned by Grey and Simcoe County Foresters as a gift for her on her visit to Barrie. I was so honoured that Georgian’s Jewellery program co-ordinator trusted my skill as a goldsmith enough to offer me this work. It was one of those rare opportunities that only happens a few times in a career, if you’re lucky. I look forward to seeing where the future will take me.
