Mission Statement

The Jewelry Collective was formed in 2010 to fill the gap of metal working at Hampshire. We are a group of passionate people working to improve our artistic abilities and hands-on metal working skills. Our goal for this collective is to learn more about jewelry making in all forms and to create beautiful and functional works of art. We hope to get more people excited about creating their own jewelry and exploring their own artistic abilities. We have a soldering station, tools to do wire work, texturing, cutting, filing, and many other things. Our general on hand materials are different gauges of silver, copper and brass wire, copper silver and brass sheet metal, solder, and assorted beads and other costume jewelry. Eventually we would like to start working with such things as enamel, casting, and precious metal clay, along with acquiring more jewelry books to help learn new skills. We would also like to host an informational jewelry classes and demonstrations that would be open to the entire Hampshire community.
