Handmade beaded jewelry makes a fantastic gift for yourself or a loved one. This Overstock.com guide provides five reasons to choose handmade beaded jewelry over commercially manufactured pieces. I don’t know about you, but having more reasons to buy handmade jewelry never hurts!
My personal philosophy is that if I can’t make it myself, I will seek out a unique, one of a kind jewelry gift from another artist. I enjoy working with the artist to develop a custom piece because I know that it will have special meaning for the recipient. Perhaps it will become a favorite accessory that she will wear several times a week. Or maybe she will love it enough to pass it along to a younger generation in the future. Either way, she will appreciate the gift even more knowing that I had a hand in its design.
