Art students give old jewelry a major makeover

A special program to repurpose old jewelry brought together students and faculty from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, North Bennet Street School, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University this fall semester.

Called Radical Jewelry Makeover, the collaborative program brings awareness to using recycled materials and gemstones to create new jewelry.

These one-of-a-kind knives loved by chefs all over the world are made in Massachusetts

Inside his Cambridge workshop, Adam Simha creates some of the culinary world's most desired tools of the trade. The knifemaker's passion for his craft is as sharp as the blades he creates.

"A great knife can change your life," he said. That's certainly the case for Simha.

After taking a blade-making class at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in the late 1990s, this former high-end furniture maker was inspired by the possibilities of what can be created from a piece of steel using heat, a hammer and grinding.
