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

Dear everyone,through a fault entirely my own I wiped out my crafthaus account and with it the entire Jackalope discussion! I sincerely apologize to all who have been following this discussion and to its many contributors. Since I know that there are still people out there who are interested especially in the last discussion I will go ahead and post this again, although all previous comments will not be there. Maybe there will be a second round of debate that takes us all in a different direction (trying hard to look on the bright side…)Here are Jillian Moore and Rachel Timmins comments on our SIERAAD experience:Greetings Jackalope Collective Supporters, Curious Makers, Fair Organizers and Goers, and Supportive Teachers!  We thought that it was high time that we gave y’all an update on our trip to SIERAAD, an international art jewelry fair located in Amsterdam.  For those of you that don’t know, we (Rachel Timmins and Jillian Moore) went to SIERAAD along with 8 other American art…Continue

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.

Scrounge

Scrounging for materials and tools is a central part of my studio practice, and there are great bargains to be found!  In the past year, I’ve purchased a nice amount of silver for about $2/ounce, received several pounds of enamels, and refurbished hundreds of rusty chasing tools.  Luck has a lot of influence, and the generosity of donors cannot be understated, but there are also strategies involved to help make oneself luckier as well. This blog will also promote recycling and reusing by…See More
