COLLEGEVILLE PA – Jewelry designer and metalsmith Christina Miller, who is a founding member of the non-profit artists’ collective called Ethical Metalsmiths, will speak April 8 (2010; Thursday) at 7 p.m. in the Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College, Main Street, Collegeville PA. The program is free and open to the public.

Ethical Metalsmiths is a network of concerned jewelers and metalsmiths who realize how their craft connects them to the origins of the materials they use, including human values, emotions and cultural traditions. The demand for ethically-sourced materials has led to their innovative Radical Jewelry Makeover, a collaborative project that brings together a local community, a gallery and a group of jewelry and metalsmithing students to transform unwanted jewelry into new work.

Miller is currently an assistant professor of jewelry and metalsmithing at Millersville University.
