The Opening Reception is on March 19, 2020The Rickie Report shares the details of how/where to donate your unwanted jewelry NOW – December 21,2019, the Kick Off Party/Symposium on January 4, 2020.  Jewelry students and professionals will transform the donations between January 4 -March 4, 2020.  Want to get involved? It is EASY!

 

 

 

Radical   Jewelry   Makeover   –

​South   Florida

 

 

 

 

 

​​A PROJECT OF: Ethical Metalsmiths 

SUPPORTED BY:

Lighthouse ArtCenter, Armory Art Center, and Resource Depot

 

 

 

 

Those tangled chains, unmatched earrings and banged up bracelets sitting at the bottom of jewelry boxes around the South Florida area are exactly what jewelry artists participating in ​Radical Jewelry Makeover – South Florida ​want to get their creative hands on. Until December 21st the non-profit, Ethical Metalsmiths and Lighthouse ArtCenter are accepting donations of old, unwanted jewelry at several Palm Beach County area locations (see complete list below). Donors will receive discount coupons to apply toward the purchase of a new piece and sales will benefit student scholarships and Ethical Metalsmiths‘ efforts to educate and connect people with responsibly sourced materials.

 

 

RJM draws attention to the creativity and skills of local jewelry designers, reveals the stories behind our personal collections and encourages re-consideration of our habits of consumption. Currently, materials used in jewelry production are sourced from some of the poorest countries in the world, sacred lands and disputed territories. Often this sourcing comes at a great cost to the environment. In Tequesta, FL, RJM will bring together volunteer “miners,” who dig out and donate their old jewelry, with volunteer jewelers and students, working together as refiners and designers to collaborate on an exhibition of re-made jewelry. Radical Jewelry Makeover will​ ​offer an informed and creative alternative to traditional mining practices and jewelry production. ​You can help by donating some of the smallest items in your home, jewelry, for reuse and recycling.

 

WHY  IS  THIS  IMPORTANT ?

 

 

Did you know Titanium is mined in the State of Florida? Heavy minerals like Titanium have been mined in Florida since 1916. Titanium can be found in the sand of many of the beaches that line our State and is used for a variety of things from paint and makeup to helicopters and spacecraft. Today, the EPA estimates that hard rock mining is the most toxic industry in the United States. Additionally, Earthworks reports that an estimated 70% of the gold mined each year is used for jewelry, and that a single gold ring leaves more than 20 tons of mine waste. Ethical Metalsmiths, an artist run non-profit organization seeks to galvanize mining reform efforts by staging an “alternative supply chain” and is working with the Lighthouse ArtCenter, Armory Art Center and Resource Depot to bring their successful project, Radical Jewelry Makeover​ ​to South Florida in the Winter/Spring season 2020.

The outreach program and has served over 45 US veterans to date. A licensed mental health therapist or a certified art therapist and Armory instructors conduct the classes. Artwork in the exhibition will be from the classes in various media that the Armory offers: ceramics-wheel throwing and tile making, paper making, painting, photography, jewelry, sculpture, and welding.

VA Creative Arts Therapist Sara E. Windrem explains that due to traumas many veterans don’t go to movie theaters and can’t go to the mall because of the crowds. The Armory has given the veterans a new comfort zone. Sara said, “I think people naturally know how to heal with art. Making them feel comfortable in a space and giving them the skills and the opportunity as a starting point is where the real healing and therapy takes place.”

and  art therapist Maria Tritico.

 

 

The exhibition reception is Friday, January 18, 2019 from 6:00-8:00 pm. Exhibition attendees can meet some of the veterans, instructors, and mental health professionals.
