Desert Jewels has been accepted to a 9-day artist residency in Grand Rapids, Michigan at Have Company this September. Marlee Grace, the goddess behind the Have Company shop and brand, hosts 12 artists per season to live and work in her space. Part retail shop, part community center, Have Company has been on our radar for well over a year as an example of the type of community-centered space we hope to cultivate with Desert Jewels. Stay tuned for updates on our residency projects, including storytelling workshops, building a custom "jewel deck," and a whole host of community gatherings.
