The only thing I love more than affordably priced conference is one that’s right in my home town. Not-for-profit Ethical Metalsmiths has partnered with MJSA and Susan Wheeler Designs to bring guest speakers and a film screening to Chicago’s Columbia College for the Chicago Responsible Jewelry Conference October 13-14, 2017.
“The Chicago Responsible Jewelry Conference invites jewelers, suppliers, educators, students, and consumers to participate. During two information-packed days, we will share specific ways individuals and companies can work together to create jewelry in an ethical, socially responsible, and ecologically sound manner.
Sharing the values and practices of producing and selling responsible jewelry is something we must embrace as a community. The Chicago Responsible Jewelry Conference seeks to do just that. In collaboration with Ethical Metalsmiths, sponsored by MJSA (with additional sponsorships to be announced), and with support from many industry leaders, this conference will reach beyond industry conversations. It will work to create active practices and gain solid commitments to a healthier, more world-conscious jewelry paradigm.”
