Radical Jewelry Makeover

Wed January 10, 2018 - Fri February 16, 2018

Free

Radical Jewelry Makeover is a community jewelry mining and recycling project of Ethical Metalsmiths that uses donated jewelry to create an alternative to mining and manufactured jewelry. Until Friday, February 16th students in the University of Wisconsin-Madison Metalsmithing & Jewelry department are accepting donations of old, unwanted jewelry at several locations across the UW-Madison campus. Metals students will spend the month of March making new jewelry out of the donated pieces, which will be on display at UW-Milwaukee’s Union Art Gallery in April. Donors will receive discount coupons to apply toward the purchase of a new piece, and sales will benefit UW student scholarships and Ethical Metalsmiths’ efforts to educate and connect people with responsibly sourced materials.

Collection sites for donated jewelry are located at the Art Lofts, the UW-Madison Art Office, Kohler Art Library, and HYART Gallery. The addresses for these locations are below:
