Correspondents

All over the world jewelers and metalsmiths are living near proposed, active and abandoned mine sites. Their proximity to the sources of our metals while using these materials themselves creates a unique perspective.

Consider becoming an Ethical Metalsmiths - Correspondent.

If you live near a proposed, active or abandoned mine, anywhere in the world, we'd like to invite you to share your thoughts about how living in such a place influences your thinking and art work. Many jewelers are deeply concerned about how the materials they used are sourced, but few have a first hand perspective. Your point-of-view could have a voice here on the EM website. Consider becoming a correspondent.

Our "Correspondents" pages currently highlight the thoughts and work of Rika Mouw. She is a jeweler and a self proclaimed environmental activist living in Homer, Alaska, the proposed headquarters of the controversial Pebble Mine. Living in this pristine, wild and now threatened environment has and continues to have a profound impact on Mouw's work and activism.
