Hard at work!

The Archive

Wahoo! The archive at Playa Jewel is now over 70 submissions strong. I’ve been staring at the drop dead photography from George Post and reading LadyBee’s fine research on the many Burning Man theme camps.

Keep an eye out for more exciting updates in the near future!

Love and Gratitude,
Karen Christians

The Necklace Factory taught burners how to professionally string beads. They brought thousands of beads complete with silk thread and clasps. Grateful burners who left with beaded necklaces, anklets and bracelets adorned the ceramic cat that sat in their tent. 

The Playajewel Project

Because of YOU and your interest, this idea is becoming more than a book with rewards. It has taken on a life of its own and will travel to New Mexico in 2015. It is our vision to share this collection of compelling work to others. Stay tuned for more details in the next update.

With love and gratitude,

Karen
