Spelunk Jewelry's debut collection was inspired by the history and geography of colorful Colorado. Examples of Spelunk's place-based interpretations include rings made from antique drawer pulls and earrings textured by Colorado railway tie.

Now, creating a second collection requires time spent in an unfamiliar place. The enriching past and culture of France's medieval countryside make it the perfect location to create a new jewelry line. Away from the demands of daily life, time spent in Noyers, France will allow unfettered opportunities for creativity. Alyssa will leave the residency with the designs, materials, and inspiration she needs to create a new timeless line that all people can enjoy.

 Backers can expect to receive their awards in the fall of 2018, with the new collection launching in 2019.

Risks and challenges

Spelunk Jewelry's one-of-a-kind, handmade jewelry collection may take more time than expected to complete. Alyssa is dedicated to designing and creating her new pieces as fast as possible, and she promises to keep you updated and informed every step of the way.
