They design projects to inspire commitment and creativity by identifying "stretch" goals and creating strategies to achieve them.

Sometimes the answer isn’t more time or more space—it’s less stuff. But how do you begin to sort out everything that has accumulated over the years? And how do you keep from accumulating more?
Host Kathy Sipple speaks with Marianne Beal Peters, the author of "Declutter for Good: Share Your Stuff & Reclaim Your Life, a book that will inspire you to rid yourself of the possessions that are clogging up your plans, goals and dreams so you can pass them along to those who could use them.
The owner at Fresh Words, Marianne writes on a variety of topics and contributes to several publications, specializing in sustainability and gardening topics. Marianne lives with her husband and two teenage daughters in Plymouth, Indiana. They recently downsized, giving away three-quarters of their possessions to move into an 85-year-old house where she's trying to establish an organic urban garden without doing permanent damage to her body or mind. When she has a free moment, she likes to sneak outside and pull weeds.
This week on Metalsmith Benchtalk Jay Whaley will interview Toby Pomeroy, an ethical metalsmith and jewelr who has traveled the world in search of fair mined gold. We'll ask him about his journey, about gold mining pracitces and how we can do our part to support ethical metalsmithing.
Growing up in India, Toby discovered his commitment to life in balance. Today TOBY POMEROY™ is a world leader in environmentally sustainable and socially responsible jewelry. The launch of EcoGold and EcoSilver set a new standard, defining ethical luxury in ways never seen previously.

Today, TOBY POMEROY studio is a handful of young artists who, fascinated with texture and form, live to work with their hands. Their commitment to live, learn and create in harmony has the artisans forging reclaimed and source-certified, Fairmined TRUE GOLD™ metals into graceful forms inspired by the simplicity of nature.
