Thank you for supporting RJM with a donation during the USA - Project Site fundraiser

Susie Ganch and Christina Miller, Radical Jewelry Makeover designers, would like to thank all the generous individuals who gave a donation to our USA Project Site fundraiser. With this support we are enthusiastically preparing for our upcoming installment of RJM that will take place in Santa Fe, NM this fall.

Your support is helping this project to happen! Funds will be applied toward necessary research time for developing informational materials related to the project, securing photo and video documentation that will allow this installment to resonate beyond New Mexico, and traveling expenses for 3 volunteers who previously worked on a Radical Jewelry Makeover and the rental of an apartment for the RJM – Team to live in and work from during the project. You are helping us to build a community of jewelers informed about the issues surrounding our material use and who will continue to search for solutions in the studio to make our jewelry part of a strategy that creates a better world.

Thank you to:
