SRAJD?


I am sure that some of you have often seen this logo or one similiar to it, on several jewelry sites and blogs, and wondered...what is that all about? SRAJD stands for :

Self representing Artists in Jewelry Design

Well OK...but what does that mean? When you purchase jewelery from an SRAJD member, you are buying directly from and supporting that artist.
"
It is the mission of the SRAJD organization to raise awareness of the benefits of buying directly from the artist. "
This is an international group that was started in the USA, by jewelry designer Laura Bracken. A selection of sponsers that are jewelry designers, are listed each month on the SRAJD sponser page with links to their websites or shops. There is also a separate list of contributing members, with links to their websites as well. This is a great resource, should you be in the market for original handcrafted jewelry, and a wonderful opportunity to support jewelry artists from around the world. There are some amazing artists listed here, and they are all offer something different and unique. There is also a wealth of invaluable information for jewelry artists, as well as tutorials on techniques, color theory, Bali silver etc. If you are a jewelry designer, or just staring out making jewelry and are interested in becoming a member or a sponser...the fees are very reasonable....please check out this website!

I have been meaning to do this, but it always gets bumped to the bottom of the to-do list. I think I will have to just get there and get it done :)
