AJDC Plays Peekaboo

Designs inspired by the children's game


The 2002 American Jewelry Design Council Design Project challenged members to create a piece of jewelry relating to the term “peekaboo.” The results show many interpretations.

AJDC is a non-profit organization of jewelry designers dedicated to elevating jewelry design and challenging professional jewelry designers worldwide to realize their creative potentials. The Design Project gives members a chance to create jewelry based on artistic merit, free from considering the practical problems of manufacturing the piece.

The Peekaboo Project pieces will be on display at the JCK Show Design Center in Las Vegas May 30-June . They will then join previous Design Project collections as part of the larger AJDC Collection.
