About this project
Hi and thank you for visiting my page! My name is Casey and I'm a jewelry artist from Lincoln, NE. I am asking for help in funding this kickstarter to create a new collection of one of a kind jewelry for the Cherry Creek Arts Festival.
What do I create?
Using traditional and alternative materials such as sterling silver, copper, PVC, tree branches and spray paint I create one of a kind jewelry. Being a self taught jeweler I have learned to solder, cold-connect, drill, forge, melt and pour metal.
I am a one woman shop, that means I do all the paperwork, marketing, take all the photos of my jewelry, create the jewelry, even take out the trash (well ok I don't but I could).
Cherry Creek Info
This will be the largest collection to date for me. About 100 pieces for the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, in Denver. This Festival choices 230 artists through a blind judging, 2100 artists applied this year which makes this festival one of, if not, the most competitive art shows in the nation, I can already feel the pressure!! Check out the rest of the artist at www.cherryarts.org
