Well there are museums now open (or shortly to open) in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, UK, that are dedicated to these subjects.
The Jewellery Quarter once housed a whole spectrum of industries, including coffin fitters and pen nib manufactures. As well as the more expected silverware producers.
Based in the Jewellery Quarter the Pen Room, Newman Brothers (a former coffin fitters site currently under development) and J W Evans (silverware manufacturers site now owned by English Heritage) have been exploring how they can work together to develop the heritage offer for schools.
There is a lovely blog post by Suzanne Carter from Birmingham Conservation Trust (who are currently developing the Newman Brothers site) about this shared approach to working. Thank you to her for the title of this post! See http://bit.ly/L28xI7
