Year 8 girls design and make nature-inspired jewellery

Year 8 girls have been studying Biomimicry in Design and Technology to design and make nature-inspired jewellery.

Pupils have worked hard to produce high quality outcomes including pendants, keyrings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and charms using the pewter casting technique.

The girls have used computer-aided design and manufacture to laser cut a personalised mould which they then use to pewter cast their jewellery.

The metal is filed, shaped, smoothed and polished before attaching accessories.

Well done, girls!
