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.
Many of these same handmade jewelry artists had their own websites. Anytime and anywhere anyone can order the same beautiful handcrafted jewelry from real people not huge corporations. Handcrafted jewelry artisans put their hearts and souls into each pair of handcrafted earrings and the handcrafted bracelets they create. Each piece of unique handcrafted jewelry is made by hand with love and patience, and with appreciation for not only the handcrafted jewelry piece, but also the person who is going to wear it and cherish it for a lifetime. Handcrafted artisan jewelry can and should bring people together.
Everyone should pay more attention to the jewelry they buy and wear. Each handmade jewelry piece should reflect and emphasize your personal style whether you prefer classic, flashy or butterfly jewelry. Most importantly you should always feel special each and every time that you wear handcrafted artisan jewelry. Also, when you are wearing unique handcrafted earrings and handcrafted bracelets you will greater understand and appreciate the high quality and patient craftsmanship that handcrafted jewelry artisans put into their creations.
