Ten days left for the 'JUNK: rubbish to gold' Kickstarter Campaign and we still need your help!

One of the things we are most proud about with JUNK: rubbish to gold is all the connections we have made with all our various partners.

We have partnered with ten Charities based in the UK and Ireland, who in return for all of their JUNK jewellery for our project, we will be donating a share of all our profits back to. These charities include a number of wonderful children's hospices, animal charities, an air ambulance charity as well as with education and Birmingham based family support Trusts.

All of these are worthy causes, that we look forward to work with, but without your help we will not be able to achieve all the things we wish!

We have devised a Kickstarter fund as a means to help us with all the boring administrative jobs- such as the collecting, sorting and storing of all of this JUNK as well as to help us to help all of the participating Jewellers and Makers who will come to the School of Jewellery in November to transform the donated JUNK into new fantastic works-of-art, ready to be exhibited here on Crafthaus and then sold via auction.

So, please, help us raise the funds we need, we have already raised 2/3's of our needed funds and are so close.... and in exchange we have a whole booty of goodies for you. There is a special book, you can only order through Kickstarter, some really, really beautiful pieces of jewellery made by the JUNK team (Jivan, Rachel and Laura) and many more things.

JUNK: rubbish to gold, is a co-creation and collaboration between jewellers Prof. Jivan Astfalck, Laura Bradshaw-Heap and Rachel Darbourne. It is a participatory design project that aims to make visible and begin conversations through the use of mass-produced fashion jewellery, issues around material consumption, recycling, waste, disposal, up-cycling and value.
