An Art Fair Journey

 A visual documentary of one socially awkward jewelry artist's journey navigating the world of Chicago art fairs.

It's me. I'm the socially awkward jewelry artist. (so...that was probably implied but it wouldn't be an accurate interaction with me without some well-intentioned, albeit awkward, redundancy.) Hi, I'm Rachel. I named my jewelry business after my name and what I make, and my eyes are closed in nearly all the pictures I take.


The truth is I have loved getting to meet so many people over the past year! Has it been a challenge? Oh, absolutely. Crowds are terrifying. But as it turns out, art fairs in Chicago seem to attract the absolute nicest and most genuine human beings I've met. I have made so many awesome connections with people about everything from jewelry to favorite coffee spots around the city. Each show gives me a little more confidence I need to keep moving forward. 


Here are some shots of previous art fairs we've participated in this past year. If we've met at a show, be sure to shoot me a message to say hi and show off a photo of you wearing your favorite Rachel Renee jewelry pieces. Thanks again for stopping by and if you want to check us out in person again, here's a list of some upcoming events:
