What I like best about handmade jewelry--whether made by me or someone else--is the fact that it is one-of-a-kind. I see each piece as a reflection of the designer who made it...an artist. I get a very special feeling when I wear handmade...something I do not feel when I wear "mass produced" jewelry.

Your earrings are lovely....

Gorgeous earrings.
I love the fact even if similar, no 2 pieces of handmade jewellery will ever be exactly the same and that the person who made it was invested in and cared about the piece.

definitely, I like that handmade components/jewelry are one of a kind. Even if the artist makes multiples of a design, each one is unique, and made by a real person who is an artist and a craftsman--not a factory worker in a third world country.

What I like about handmade jewelry from other people, is the fact that someone's heart and soul is in each piece....What I like about my own handmade jewelry is it represents to me, my inner self expressing.....

Same as Patti, for me, I love that it is made completely by hand by someone as opposed to using substandard parts or made by slave labor (although as artists maybe I should rephrase that LOL) and the person who made it was proud of what they made!

Handmade jewelry feels "alive" to me. It tells the story of a creative vision. Its like wearing a piece of someone's soul.

What I love about hand made jewelry is that the heart of the designer/creator goes in to each piece, and each piece of jewelry is a piece of wearable art.

I like making my own jewelry because it comes from my true self; the self developed from my life experiences, the people who have touched my life and the hopes and dreams of the future. It is now as much a part of me as making food for my children.
A non-negotiable!

Very pretty earrings! Waht I love about handmade jewelry is that no two pieces will ever be identical. Each piece has its own personality. - Lisa L.

Alice Howe said...

Initially, I loved making jewelry because it would fit my large wrist and neck. But after that, I love putting my own touch on a piece, knowing that it didn't just come off a machine.

I have always preferred handmade items to store bought one. I owned a sewing business for years and loved creating everything from clothes, draperies, house hold items and even created dolls that were copywrighted. I started my jewelry business out of the love and admiration of other jewelry designers like myself.

I think I love buying handmade almost as much as making handmade. Everyone one has their own unique styles and generally they are one of a kind. You can just feel how much heart has went into a handmade item.

Love the earrings,

What I like best about handmade by me is it's something no-one else has. And what I like best about handmade by anyone is, it's unique. Textures/ideas that no-one else can usually replicate.

MAC - the thing I best loved about hand made jewellery? The the word 'hand' - from the maker's hand; the energy and creativity of the maker's hand. I come to make jewellery mainly by accident. I start out making bigger stuff and just love to make smaller bits from the remnants. I often just see what I do as small wearable sculptures.Love the collaborative nature of what you guys do on LMAJ. Go well. B
