Greenville Designer Jewelry Show & VIP Preview Party

MAKE MADE is excited to announce their inaugural Greenville Designer Jewelry Show (formerly known as the ‘Greenville Jewelry Invitational’), the very first event of its kind, to be held at Greenville Center for Creative Arts on Sunday, December 4th, 2022. The show will be spotlighted by an exciting evening VIP Preview Party on December 3rd, where artists’ work will be modeled live and guests will have an opportunity to mingle with artists and get a first look at one of a kind pieces. Featuring 19 SC and NC artists, this exciting two day juried show will provide artists with the opportunity to showcase their work and offer the local community a chance to support exciting works in a media and talent they have yet to truly encounter – just in time for the holiday shopping season. The show will be held on December 3rd & December 4th, 2022 in the Village arts district of West Greenville, South Carolina.

The show is the first and only one of it's kind in the area, and they aim to amplify excellence in artisan jewelry in a city that has a strong and growing value for supporting local artists and shopping local. The two day show will celebrate excellence among local and semi-local jewelry designers, and will complement many of Greenville’s other arts events by offering a show specific to this medium, garnering esteemed participants from just beyond the Upstate, and offering a one of a kind holiday shopping experience that supports small American made artisan businesses. Tickets for the VIP Preview Party are available at their website.

Throughout the global pandemic, many fellow artists lost a major source of income – doing in-person retail shows. As well as becoming a much-anticipated local artisan/shopping event, this show will be an opportunity to return to retail and normalcy for many of the participating jewelry artists. 

MAKE MADE's hope is that the show becomes just as invaluable to the artistic community and greater Greenville community as other local arts events like Artisphere and the Indie Craft Parade have – while offering something different and completely unique. They know Greenville, as the supportive arts advocate that it is, will accept this event with open arms. They are excited to offer the local community a chance to see and support a body of work and talent they have yet to encounter, offer an opportunity to provide free access to the visual arts for the Greenville community, and support their fellow small artisan businesses.
