Get crafty with Jewel on her Handmade Holiday Tour

Credit: Tour DesignJewel is offering some lucky fans the chance to not only enjoy some live holiday music from her, but to also get her help creating some handmade Christmas gifts.

The singer, actress, author and poet has announced her Handmade Holiday tour, kicking off November 24 in Las Vegas.  The trek will feature Jewel performing Christmas classics and originals alongside her dad Atz and her brothers Atz Lee and Nikos Kilcher, who appear on the reality show Alaska: The Last Frontier.

In addition, there will be opportunities for fans to make one-of-a kind holiday gifts at each tour stop.  Also at each tour stop, 25 individuals in need will receive vouchers for the gift-making workshops, and fans will be encouraged to make donations or to donate vouchers to those needy individuals.  There will also be on-site pet adoptions at each tour stop, featuring animals from local shelters.

In a statement, Jewel says, “I am so honored to share some of the traditions I was raised with in Alaska on our family homestead. Building memories by sharing handmade moments, creating unique gifts and sharing songs is a Kilcher family tradition we can’t wait to share with others on this tour.”
