THE JACKALOPE CAMPAIGN


Dear Everyone,

I want to introduce you to the Jackalope Collective, a group of 10 US based jewelers selected by and including Rachel Timmins and Jillian Moore, going to Amsterdam this fall to participate at the SIERAAD art fair. Here you will find profiles of each one of us (one at a time!) with some background information on what compels us to make what we make.

Most of us have only recently completed our MFA which puts us in the category of EMERGING ARTISTS. This means that going to Amsterdam is an expensive trip for us to front. In order to assist our group with the associated expenses we have launched the JACKALOPE CAMPAIGN, with wonderful perks made by members of our group. Please check it out and support our group! Any help in funding means a little less worry about the financial burden and a lot more freedom to make gorgeous jewelry!

Thank you so much!

Katja

Just wanted to add that in addition to these 10, there will be other US artists at the fair! I'll be sharing a booth with Jennaca Davies, Alicia Boswell, and Mallory Weston.
