Don’t know what to do with your old, unwanted jewelry?

Radical Jewelry Makeover: Wisconsin, a collaborative project of Ethical Metalsmiths, is seeking donations of old unwanted jewelry for a community jewelry mining project happening this Spring. Jewelry students at UW-Milwaukee, UW-Madison, and UW-Stout will be transforming donations into radically fresh and responsible jewelry. The project will culminate in an exhibition at UW-Milwaukee’s Union Art Gallery in April.

Until Friday, February 16th we are accepting donations of jewelry at the Art Lofts lobby, Kohler Art Library, HYART Gallery, and the Art Office. To donate jewelry of any variety, quality, or material type, please submit the official project donation form in a sealed plastic bag along with your items.

Donors will receive discount coupons to apply toward the purchase of a new piece; sales will benefit UW student scholarships and Ethical Metalsmiths’ efforts to educate and connect people with responsibly sourced materials.
