The exhibition runs from Saturday 26th March – Tuesday 29th March 2022.
Students and staff from Scotland’s art colleges were invited to make new pieces for the exhibition – colleges involved are: The Glasgow School of Art; Glasgow Kelvin College; City of Glasgow College; Edinburgh College of Art; Fife College and Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. There will be 70 pieces in the final selection for the exhibition. In addition to support from Princes Square, RJM Scotland has been made possible through support from Culture Business Fund Scotland and Jamieson & Carry.
Radical Jewellery Makeover was developed by Ethical Metalsmiths, an organisation based in the USA, and has travelled the world since 2007. This is the first time it has taken place in the UK. There was a call-out for unwanted or broken jewellery to be donated to the project – both precious metals and costume jewellery were accepted - the jewellery was sorted through by the students and disassembled so they could create re-imagined and thoughtfully designed pieces.
All jewellery featured in the exhibition is for sale and will be available via an online shop.
Commenting on the exhibition, Katie Moody, Centre Director, Princes Square, said: “We’re thrilled to be hosting and sponsoring this exciting exhibition. It’s the first time this project has travelled to the UK, and we’re delighted to have been chosen as host. All jewellery will be for sale and we’re sure it will be a big hit with jewellery lovers and visitors to Princes Square.”
