    Making jewellery-small enterprises for a big European crises

    The project was a result of the contact seminar ”Creativity & Innovations in Handicraft and Arts” held in Espoo, Finland on 9-12 October 2012. The project provided learners with descriptions and video clips of various styles of making jewellery using different materials such as silver, glass, pearls, wood, plastic mass and recycled materials. Project participants and social partners established a network as an international platform of exchange experience in jewellery business. The target groups were VET students, women about 50+, unemployed and representatives of the world of work. The best techniques were conducted to produce e.g. an E- photo album with photos of jewellery made by European learners. International mobilities with workshops acted as a practice for learners and staff after local trainings. Dissemination activities were crucial to attract customers to jewellery business to create jobs for trainees. The project was the first step to an ECVET connection in the European framework and a basic description of an ECVET unit of jewellery making, which can be developed further in next projects, was produced. An ECVET unit promotes the comparability and transparency of qualifications in different European countries, which improves the empoyability and encourages free mobility. The project began a process of capacity building in the field of jewellery making. International mobilities with workshops were practice for learners and staff after local trainings. The project established a partnership between European organisations that will have an impact on local actors and business to improve employment opportunities in jewellery sector by showing examples of good practice.
