Radical Jewelry Makeover: Baltimore/New Works is an exhibition celebrating the culmination of Radical Jewelry Makeover: Baltimore, a community jewelry mining and recycling project that draws attention to the creativity and skills of local jewelers and designers and encourages people to consider their habits of consumption. RJM examines the stories behind our collections and breathes new life into unwanted or discarded jewelry. Ten thousand pieces of unwanted, broken, and discarded jewelry were donated by 128 individual donors and then local artists “mined” the donated jewelry as source materials to make new pieces. Sales of jewelry from the exhibition
will benefit Ethical Metalsmiths and the Baltimore Jewelry Center.
