What a wonderful Kickstarter launch! What a beginning! We have raised $3,635 since our Friday kickoff party at Artisan’s Asylum. This makes the project 24% funded in only a few short days. The evening hosted three great lectures from all of the authors and a sampling of the jewelry for all to see in person.
This past weekend, George, LadyBee, and myself traveled to Martha’s Vineyard to talk about the project. Ok, there was some hiking, long lazy meals with a lot of good wine and engaging stories in between. We all bonded and are very excited about the future of this project.
I would like to thank all of those who have already donated, your early support and belief in this project is very moving and I fully appreciate it. I would like to personally recognize Sumner Silverman who has donated at the $1000 level!
Jewelry of the Playa isn’t just a book, it is a living archive of meaningful gifts from the playa. Do you have a story or a cool piece of jewelry from Burning Man, if so, we would like to hear from you! We are accepting submissions for the book until JULY 1, 2014.
