Stylish and Original Butterfly Jewelry & Hummingbird Jewelry Designs
Butterfly jewelry and hummingbird jewelry designs by the artisans of Copper Reflections are unusual as we are the only ones making this type of handmade jewelry using techniques and designs that we have developed over the years. We have been designing and producing our artisan handmade jewelry and unique gift ideas since 1985. I started my wholesale fashion jewelry business in Vancouver, Canada. I was making jewelry and selling it on the street in Gastown, Vancouver.
I began selling my unique jewelry crafts at retail craft shows in British Columbia and Alberta showcasing my hummingbird necklaces, unique hummingbird earrings, butterfly bracelets and various styles of my handcrafted artisan jewelry and unique copper gifts. I was making custom jewelry for my customers. Later I moved to Ontario, Canada and began doing the craft shows there. I also started my business in the United States and traveled to the craft shows in New York State, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Illinois, Vermont, and many others. I really enjoyed traveling, seeing new places, meeting other craftspeople and customers.
It was at a craft show in Columbus, Ohio when I met a man from Missouri who showed me how to do diamond cut. This greatly increased our sales. I have always appreciated his help in teaching me this technique. Individually diamond cutting by made, all our hummingbird jewelry and butterfly jewelry pieces sparkle like there were diamonds on them. This made everything look more expensive. Being so unusual that most people had not seen it before combined with our reasonable prices have made our handmade jewelry business a great success.
I began to wholesale my artistic jewelry and my unique gift ideas throughout the United States and Canada at wholesale jewelry and gift shows focusing on wholesale fashion jewelry, wholesale costume jewelry, and wholesale trendy jewelry. We came up with new techniques and artistic designs over the years that have made this type of handmade jewelry and hummingbird jewelry unique to us.
We have received artisan awards for the originality of our unique handcrafted jewelry and for the quality of our unique craft. The designers and artisans of Copper Reflections make each piece by hand, individually handcrafting copper into unique modern jewelry. Our artisans bring to you the antique copper craft in modern designs and exceptional quality. We enjoy making them with great care hoping that you will enjoy wearing them.
Copper Reflections have many skillful and talented artisans who have 20 years of experience of handcrafting handmade jewelry and unique gifts. We do not use pre-made jewelry parts and put them together. Copper sheets come into our workshop in coils. They are sliced into the correct lengths for hummingbird earrings, bracelets, rings, hummingbird necklaces, etc using guillotines.
These copper sheets are then polished using buffing tools and steel brushing to achieve the matte and subtle effect on copper. Jewelry designs are made ready after hard months of work, many trials and experiments and are finally transferred onto the copper sheets.
Handmade jewelry designs are then silver-plated and special finishes are applied to make them last for years, so people can enjoy their handmade jewelry without any special care. There are actually three layers of finish on our unique jewelry to prevent the color from changing or tarnishing over the years. These handmade jewelry pieces are then cut out by hand using jewelers’ shears or cutting tools.
After the jewelry pieces are cut out to their shapes, they are then meticulously diamond cut ( or bright cut ) so that they sparkle as if the handcrafted jewelry has had diamonds inserted in them. This makes our very reasonably priced wholesale jewelry look more expensive. We believe that because of this very reason, our unique butterfly jewelry has been selling so well for almost 35 years.
Our wholesale jewelry is very reasonably priced compared to its perceived value. Our butterfly jewelry looks more expensive when you take their uniqueness and great quality into consideration, and compare that with their prices. They look very expensive but they are very reasonably priced. After the bright cut, another coat of finish is applied to our unique jewelry for extra protection.
Handmade earrings, brooches, necklaces, bracelets, hair clips, and rings in butterfly jewelry themes are then formed into their unique jewelry shapes. Copper sheets come into our workshop in coils of raw copper and go out as beautiful, unique, great quality and very reasonably priced handmade jewelry, handcrafted copper jewelry, and wholesale jewelry.
Our years of hard work have been very enjoyable for all of us at the workshop of Copper Reflections as we take great pride in our meticulous work and enjoy what we are doing. We are happy to know that there have been many customers over the years who have enjoyed our unique handmade jewelry for many years which has made all our hard work worthwhile.
