Jewelry for Christmas

Looking for a beautiful piece of handcrafted jewelry for a Christmas gift for you or for someone else? Let a Self Representing Artisan Jewelry Designer help you out.

What's SRAJD you ask? From the website:
  • An SRAJD member sells the jewelry that they designed and created. When you purchase from an SRAJD member, you are buying directly from and supporting the artist.
  • Aside from raising customer awareness, we also work as a community to help, nurture, instruct, and encourage one another.
I've been a member for a long time - pretty much since this group started. I'm Artist number 37. Yup. Double Digits. One of the first 50 members. I haven't always participated fully but I'm definitely more active now.

Artists in this group range in skill and ability - from beginner to professional. But we all have in common a love of creating and a desire to educate others about handmade.

To support a self representing artist this year, go to Etsy and search for SRAJD and you will find over 9,000 pieces of jewelry to choose from. All handmade.

I even made a treasury with some of the beautiful pieces in shades of silver and blue made by SRAJD members. And one with Red, White, and Black items. But there really are all kinds of lovely items to find among these artists.
