“LOVE: Design Challenge” exhibit at Alchemy 9-2-5
Jewelry from 29 artists from across the United States including seven New England artists is on exhibit at Alchemy 9-2-5 through March 3. The art was chosen from a group of 75 artists who purchased the same kit of materials for the “Toolbox Initiative," a charity to which Alchemy donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the jewelry. The “Toolbox Initiative” is an organization that brings new and used jeweler’s tools to jewelers in Africa who often have nothing more than a blowtorch, a hammer and an old piece of a railroad tie with which to work. These diverse pieces of jewelry are all one-of-a-kind and quite thought provoking.
