Volunteer Hours Reward
As a non-profit, Midwest Metalsmiths relies solely on volunteers to help the organization grow and develop. We are always looking for volunteers to serve on various committees or help organize gatherings, social events, and demonstrations. Besides the obvious benefit of helping build our metalsmithing community in the Midwest, you will also be rewarded for your time through our Midwest Metalsmiths Service Award Program. Service awards come in the form of silver "jewelry making tool" pins which are handcrafted by our very own Sherri Jaudes. This is our way of recognizing and thanking members who graciously donate their time and hard work in making Midwest Metalsmiths what it is today and what it will become in the future.
