Crafting Change Ethical Business
The recent event set up by Chrysalis Arts, I have been attending their Greening Arts Practice discussion and invited artists forums over the past year. A series of talks revealing how artists made decisions to work with their practice in ethical ways, using suppliers, materials and organisation.
I have a particular interest in Ute Decker as she works as a jeweller and trades as an ethical goldsmith and I have been following the development in fairtrade and ethical jewellery practice over the last decade. I intend to use a more ethical approach in my own practice.

The Ethical Making Resource provides practical information for jewellers and silversmiths who want to improve the environmental and social sustainability of their practice, and for buyers and collectors looking for information on purchasing ethically made jewellery and silver.
Created by the Incorporation of Goldsmiths Scotland, Ute Decker was the principal consultant and has fed over nine years of her own research, passion and commitment to excellence, into this Resource.http://www.ethicalmaking.org
