Handmade Facts
1. You are supporting a person, not a corporation or factory.
Investing in handcrafted jewelry means that you get a connection with the artist.2. Each piece is unique and has a story behind it. The handmade jewelry sends a message which is crafted inside each unique piece by the craftsman. Sometimes the artist shapes the message into a story, while other times it is up to you to find its meanings.

3. A handmade item cannot be duplicated
Variations in color, shading, texture, shape, and grain are inherent in a handmade item. This means that every handmade item you purchase is also one-of-a-kind. Even if the artist tries to reproduce a piece, it will not be the same as the original: size, colors, and shape will differ.

4. The value of time
Since there is no automated machinery involved, it takes an incredible amount of time to produce just a single piece of handmade jewelry. A designer can often spend hours planning, designing, and manufacturing, a single piece of jewelry. And many times, the finishing process of the jewelry (varnishing/painting, drying, sanding, and repeat) can take hours or even days. That`s a lot of devotion, care, and attention to the piece of jewelry.

5. Exclusivity
CNCs can keep going even once the designer is gone. Handmade jewelry is different, as artisans can only create a finite number of pieces in their career as a designer. Owning a piece of handmade jewelry means you likely have a limited edition which gives you a sense of exclusivity. Remember, they could retire at any time, making it impossible to get another.
