ACCEPTING DONATIONS NOW!

We are accepting donations for the San Francisco edition of Radical Jewelry Makeover RIGHT NOW through September 11th. There are several drop off sites throughout the Bay Area as well as one mail in site (please see details below).

This is your chance to dig through those old, tangled chains, gifts from old flings, and unmatched earrings and donate them to Radical Jewelry Makeover, a project of Ethical Metalsmiths. During September and October, jewelry artists from the Bay Area will transform your generous donations into new jewelry. Donors receive a discount coupon available and redeemable at the final exhibition for a new piece of "madeover" jewelry.

The exhibition of finished work will take place at Velvet da Vinici gallery from Oct. 22 - Nov. 9.

Please donate! No other jewelry can be tracked to its origin as transparently as items from your own collection. Help us create a responsible jewelry movement.
