Radical Jewelry Makeover: Boston

December 6, 2021 - January 20, 2022
(closed for Winter Break from December 18, 2021 - January 2, 2022 & Monday, January 17, 2022)

Radical Jewelry Makeover: Boston is a collaboration with Massachusetts College of Art and Design, North Bennet Street School, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University.

Jewelry making students and professionals collaborated on a semester-long project to collect, sort, and remake donations from the community in order to offer an informed and creative alternative to traditional mining practices and jewelry production. This exhibition is the culmination of this project and features rings, necklaces, brooches, earrings, and more for sale, all made using materials from over 70 donors in the Boston area.
