For over twenty-five years we have been making and selling handmade jewelry. Over that time we have met many people who have sensitive skin and have allergies to metal. We make copper handcrafted jewelry so many customers have asked our advice on various topics regarding metal allergies.
The most common complaint is regarding ear wires. When choosing handmade earrings, always select hypo-allergenic or surgical steel ear wires, as this is the least reactive type of metal. Sterling silver and even gold have trace amounts of other metals which can cause an allergic reaction. Surgical steel ear wires are the safest choice if you are buying handmade earrings as a gift and do not know how the person reacts to metals. Cleaning the ear wires with rubbing alcohol before wearing will also reduce any allergic reaction.
There are some people who use jewelry cleaners available commercially to care for their handmade jewelry. If you choose to use these be sure that you remove any residue completely. Some of the chemicals used to clean silver and copper jewelry can also cause an allergic reaction if it comes in contact with the skin, especially bracelets and colorful handcrafted rings.
Also keep in mind that dangle earrings with surgical steel ear wires will cause less irritation than stud earrings or post earrings as there is less metal in contact with the skin. Along the same line of thinking, lightweight handmade earrings are always preferable compared with heavy earrings that can stretch the ear lobes. Not only can this be quite painful, it can also cause swelling, irritation and cause head aches so avoid heavy earrings altogether.
Many people have reactions when their skin comes into contact with copper jewelry. Copper oxidizes by darkening and then turning green, just as sterling does so by tarnishing and iron does so by rusting. It is a natural process but the environment determines how quickly it happens. It happens faster in high humidity, but the speed of oxidation is also determined by the body chemistry of different people. Some people wear copper every day and it never turns their skin green while other people wear it and it turns in one day. Some people can turn sterling dark in one day, as well.
We always use a clear lacquer finish on all our copper handmade jewelry so that it does not react with the skin. You can seal your copper jewelry so that it cannot tarnish by coating it at home with a clear acrylic spray paint. Be careful to make sure that the piece of jewelry is completely clean, dry and free from finger prints.
Anyone who has allergic reactions to metals should use common sense when wearing handmade jewelry. Always keep your metal handcrafted jewelry clean. Do not wear metal or copper jewelry if it is hot and humid, or you are participating in sports. Sweating will increase the chances of skin rashes, as will any activity involving water like swimming or gardening. Ask when buying handmade jewelry to learn how to care for handmade jewelry as every type may have special cleaning requirements to keep them looking new.
Everyone admires those people who always seem to give the perfect gifts. Everyone enjoys receiving very unique gifts that were chosen to match our personality. Needless to say we all have gotten gifts that we did not like and never used. There is an art to selecting the best unique gifts that everybody loves. This year make a goal to choose the perfect unique gifts for everyone on your list.
The personality of the person receiving the gift is probably the most important factor in choosing the perfect unique gift for Christmas. If the gift receiver is fun-loving, out-going and dramatic then they would probably enjoy items with lots of color, exotic looks and bold fashion accessories like handmade bracelets or handmade earrings. On the other hand, if they are the quiet, studious type that remains in the background even at family functions, then generally they would probably like something less colorful and more functional like handcrafted necklaces or handmade barrettes.
Whether the recipient is very casual or very sophisticated in their tastes is a factor to take into consideration and apply the proper degree of casualness to your gift. Always select something that is appropriate to their style and your relationship with them. When selecting Christmas gifts for your boss something functional they can use is always a good idea, but your best friend deserves a unique gift that is more personal.
A great way to find an avenue in gift giving is to know about their hobbies and special interests. Everyone enjoys receiving something that is useful or something they collect. If you take this route, find out exactly what they want or choose an item that is used in that hobby. For example, if your best friend enjoys making handmade jewelry, you might want to give them a subscription to a jewelry making magazine which they will enjoy throughout the year.
Avoid anything that requires exact sizing, unless you know the size for sure. We all have experienced the too small sweater with very long arms. Unless you know, without hesitation that the clothing will fit, choose something more generic in sizing with a lot of personal style. Fashion accessories, such as scarves or handmade jewelry to enhance her favorite outfit, are a great idea and most need no sizing.
Think about what might make a task in their life easier or more fun. This is something many of us do not think about, especially with buying gifts for aging parents who seem to have everything. Take note of issues that present themselves as problems for your friends, parents or other gift recipients. For grandma who loves her cats, a pair of handmade earrings in cat jewelry themes might be just what she needs. Surprise them with products that can make life easier and more fun. You know they will appreciate and cherish them for years to come.
If you need to buy something for a co-worker you barely know, make sure it is something most everyone can use. Functional gifts like coffee mugs, kitchen towels or photograph frames are always on the top of the list. For a lady co-worker handmade bracelets or handcrafted necklaces in their favorite animal jewelry themes are always a unique gift idea.
Choosing a color for clothing or for home decor is always best done when you know the person you are shopping for well. Familiarize yourself with their favorite color combinations, style and home decor. You do not want to give crystal glasses to someone that has casual decor, three kids and a dog who never formally entertains. A gift of handmade jewelry can not go wrong for the ladies on your list. There are also many handmade gifts for men available such as money clips, key chains and western belt buckles.
The best unique gifts are the ones that come from paying attention to the person you are buying the gift for. Take your time to observe what makes them happy. Perhaps your sister loves horses, handmade bracelets and handmade earrings in horse jewelry themes would be a unique gift that she would treasure for years to come.
Find a few convenient places to shop locally and online. They should be reliable in their deliveries, have a wide variety of handmade jewelry and unique gifts, and maybe even offer gift wrap to make shopping less hectic. Those online stores, put in your “favorites” so you always know the best places for handmade jewelry and unique gifts.
