Radical Jewelry Makeover- South Florida
Radical Jewelry Makeover (RJM) is Ethical Metalsmiths' innovative community mining project. It raises awareness of the connection between mining, metalsmithing, activism, collaboration, and art. It involves volunteer "miners," "smelters," "refiners," jewelers, and metalsmiths working together to create a new and transparent supply chain.
RJM relies on local “mines” – donated jewelry – as a source of “raw” material. The donated jewelry is then de-constructed to the original components, and reconstructed into wearable works of art by artists, students, and professionals.
Donated jewelry is rich with sentiment, and lends itself to conversation about source, future thinking design, and collaborative problem-solving. The completed jewelry sold through the Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery will generate program funds and raise awareness.
What can you do? "Mine" your broken or unwanted/outdated jewelry to our donation drive running from November 21 - December 21, 2019.
Jewelry of all kinds are welcome, from costume to fine jewelry. Each donor will receive a discount coupon as a thank you, to be applied to the purchase of a piece of made-over jewelry.
If you would like to donate but do not live near the Lighthouse ArtCenter, you can mail your donation to us or find one of our community members that have generously agreed to be a drop off location!
