Ring of Learning Charter Members
The Ring of Learning is a group of people dedicated to sharing information about ethical sourcing of jewelry materials and responsible jewelry practices.
Charter members of the Ring of Learning generously invest in the success of EM's educational goals to update academic and trade school curricula to include critical ethical sourcing and responsible manufacturing content, developing and distributing timely information designed for the professional jeweler, and raising awareness among present and future consumers of jewelry. Ring of Learning is an Ethical Metalsmiths’ start-up fund.
This Fund directs monies towards educational programs for:
New Staff, visiting artists, webinars and workshops, teaching materials, RJM projects, student committee endeavors, jewelry making kits for workshops, international exhibitions and printed materials, and sponsorships for emerging professional jewelers and student jewelers. Our goal for the fund is to raise $100,000 in gifts and pledges in 2015
