The Pool - Amsterdam Jewelry Collective is an autonomous team of fifteen professional makers, ranging from emerging to both mid-career and established artists. While some originally hail from other countries, all members of the collective are based in the Netherlands.
The artist-run jewellery shop is currently looking for two new members. Are you based In Amsterdam or nearby and would like to join? Do you want to present your work on The Pool's shelves and take part in the daily life of a creative shop? Are you able to invest some time to give a hand to all the current and coming projects that are being developed? 

About The Pool
  • The Pool has been created by a collective of artists in 2020. We are co-renting a selling space in the heart of Amsterdam (Grimburgwal 4) historical goldsmith neighbourhood. We are a heterogeneous team of makers with a diverse background, all passionate about jewellery.
  • The Pool is an artist-run space. This means that we do all organisation, accounting, shopkeeping and everything in between ourselves.
  • We all pay a membership fee every month (€120 for the first 9 months, €100 after this period). This covers our shop rent, extra project fees, etc. to ensure the space runs fluidly.
  • 80% of sales go to the artist and 20% to the collective.
  • We are open 5 days a week from 12 to 18. Shifts are shared between members. Each of the 15 members holds a role within a team (events, PR, bookkeeping, administration), while also being ready to jump into any task that pops up.
  • We meet once a month to go over future deadlines, and achievements and plan future exhibitions, photoshoots, events, and general housekeeping.
