SRAJD stands for Self-Representing Artist Jewelry Designer.
An SRAJD member sells the jewelry that they designed and created. When you purchase from an SRAJD member, you are buying directly from and supporting the artist.
Member Benefits: You don’t receive anything tangible from the SRAJD organization, but you benefit from being part of a growing grassroots effort to raise customer awareness of the difference between artists trying to sell their own creations versus middlemen trying to make a buck off of slave labor and/or assembly-line craftsmanship. Connecting with like minds and being part of a team that strives to improve conditions for the artist can be considered a benefit, too.
To apply you must: Sell jewelry that you designed and made.
I'm member number 2217. Now I'm assuming that there are more self-representing jewelry artists than just twenty-two hundred and change...
So c'mon all you other jewelry artists! Join the grass roots movement and get your own number today! (I get absolutely NOTHING for making this request, I'm just excited)
