Jewelry Making

Jewelry Making is something that anyone can do no matter what the artistic skill level.  This class may be one of the most enjoyable classes you can take at Fremont High. Creating something of your own design is very satisfying.  One of the benefits of the jewelry class is that you will come away from the experience with some of your own creations. Jewelry classes are definately enjoyable,..there is work involved, but it is so fun you don't seem to notice. 

Go ahead and take a look at some of the students and work below in the gallery.
