Radical Jewelry Makeover Project

From knotted chains to mismatched earrings, unwanted items of jewelry receive a creative refashioning at this exhibition and partnership between the Ethical Metalsmiths and Lighthouse ArtCenter.

The materials used in jewelry are often sourced from developing countries with harmful methods of extraction. To raise awareness of the challenges faced by the Third World, The Chesterfield Palm Beach proudly sells ME to WE chocolate bars in the lobby. ME to WE grants children better access to education and empowers cacao farmers in Ecuador—the chocolate tastes incredible too.
