To enrich the symposium experience members of the JSN travelled to San Francisco to meet the Critique Collective and absorb themselves in the culture of US contemporary jewellery.
The JSN travel team got up in the early hours Tuesday to head off to the airport for the very long journey. Napping regularly all the way and a change in Charlotte we all arrived safely in San Francisco early evening. Kelly from the Critique Collective collected the JSN travellers from the Airport and took us to our amazing accommodation in Mission where we met Shana, another Critique Collective member with our instructions and keys. Jen our landlady for the week came in later, introducing us to the cats and made us a much appreciated cup of tea. Pretty soon after we all went to bed exhausted with traveling and time we had been up! Below is a pic of the lovely apartment we were staying in.
