Over the last couple of months, student and professional jewellers have been working with donated jewellery transforming it into new, radically fresh and responsible pieces. The Radical Jewellery Makeover (RJM) is a travelling community education project and an initiative of Ethical Metalsmiths. It is a fun, fast-paced project that educates jewellers of all levels about the mining and material sourcing issues involved in jewellery making. RJM draws attention to the creativity and skills of local jewellery designers, reveals the stories behind our personal collections and encourages re-consideration of our habits of consumption.
Opening Event: Wednesday, 14 December 2016, 6–8pm
