Consulting Co. Launches First Online Course About Jewelry Sustainability
Christina T. Miller Sustainable Jewelry Consulting’s four-part class is enrolling now.
“Foundations for Sustainable Jewelry Practices” is an introductory course geared toward those just starting in the jewelry industry, like students, recent graduates, new business owners or staff, and jewelry industry members who want to build a foundation on the topic.
It provides knowledge about the jewelry industry, core concepts about the supply chain, and information about how materials are sourced, including an introduction on how jewelry makers should approach responsible sourcing.
The class includes four video lessons as well as downloadable resources and outside reference links.
The first lesson covers where the jewelry industry currently stands and where change is needed and why.
This is followed by a lesson explaining some of the terms the jewelry industry uses, and then the third lesson offers a basic overview of how jewelry materials are produced.
The fourth and final lesson reviews what students have learned and encourages them to act by offering ideas of what they can do immediately to effect change.
The class also features a student forum to encourage discussion and peer-to-peer learning among students.
“Foundations for Sustainable Jewelry Practices” is available on the company’s website. Enrollment is $97 and open now.
“I have seen the need to establish foundational knowledge to grow from. The questions we get daily reflect the noble aspirations of jewelers to find the best solution or source for their jewelry and the reality is, it’s complicated,” said Founder and Lead Consultant Christina Miller.
