Why People Prefer Handcrafted Jewelry

Many people use handcrafted jewelry to help express their individuality and how they feel feeling on any given day. Some ladies love glitter and sparkle, gold and silver, bright colors like hot pink to make them the center of attraction where ever they go. Others prefer simple, classic styles in subdued colors and earth tones that give an air of sophistication and elegance. Still others choose to show their love of nature and their free spirit by selecting butterfly jewelry, hummingbird jewelry or wolf jewelry. What ever style handcrafted jewelry you prefer you are sure to find the perfect handmade jewelry just for you.

There is a disturbing trend toward mass-produced, low quality, generic jewelry, which still costs as much as real handcrafted jewelry without the character or charm of authentic handcrafted jewelry. There are times when you have purchased something online only to feel disappointed, and at times, even betrayed that the picture looked so much better than the actual piece you received.

A friend purchased earrings from an internet jewelry website. They were silver hoops with gorgeous butterflies in the middle. Then she wore them to work and got several compliments, but then after a couple of hours noticed that one of the butterflies was missing. My friend contacted the company who had sold the earrings. The procedure was long and complicated to replace the butterfly jewelry earrings she just gave up.

One day my friend went to a craft show and visited many handcrafted jewelry artisans there who make all their own handcrafted jewelry. Every one of them would stand behind their unique handcrafted jewelry, no paperwork required. She bought several handcrafted bracelets and handcrafted earrings which are all beautiful, unique jewelry pieces and still look as good as they did when she bought them. The moral of the story is simple, handcrafted jewelry from a real person is the way to go.

    You are right, the Internet can be a great place to buy and sell jewelry. At the time I didn’t understand how competitive the market really is. Finding the proper niche is a major key to becoming successful on the web.

    I started my first website about 8 years ago in an attempt to sell some of my home made jewelry. It was a complete and utter failure. I didn’t understand at the time that the search term “sterling silver jewelry” was so competitive that I was pretty much bound to fail. Thank goodness I never gave up. I still have that original domain name, however I don’t currently use it.

    That challenge help me to learn that it’s not enough to have a great looking website and great prices. You have to plan ahead, do market research, get the proper domain names. Market, Market, Market. If you can’t be found on the web you will never sell on the web.

    While making jewelry is my first passion, I no longer have the time to design any more because I’m too busy working on the Internet (funny how things work out), however I do get the time to do a few cabochons and I get to sell those online.

    I guess what I’m trying to say to anyone that is thinking about selling their jewelry online is, that it’s not a get quick scheme. It takes planning, hard work, and yes, sometimes, a little luck.
