There are many things that make handmade jewellery special, so today we are going to give you 5 Reasons to Buy Handmade Jewellery. We are not only designing and crafting our pieces of jewellery, but we are consumers too and we know what we want to see in a specially made item, from cards to home accessories or clothing.
Each piece of handmade jewellery requires time and that comes with an emotional investment made by the maker too. Remember that a person spent their time shaping, touching, making, checking, and finishing each piece. If you are thinking that time is a resource, that makes it one of the most precious ones.
It’s true that handmade jewellery takes more time to make, as no machinery is involved. It’s also more personal for both customer and maker.
Sadly we are still living in a world where is modern slavery, where nature and wildlife is not a priority for big corporations that want to fill container after container with mass-market items.
A small business making items by hand will care how that material was made, will care how far it comes from. If there is a new and better option, a small business can adjust and adapt so much faster. Being ethical comes with a higher price tag, but this is something we feel is important. At the same time, handmade items are more special than mass-produced items, are kept for longer and they can have a special meaning too.
3. Support small business.
Every time you buy a gorgeous piece of handmade jewellery, you are paying for that craftsmen’s income and that fuels the local economy. Maybe the item you are buying is not made close to you, even so, that item is created by an entrepreneur with a small business that has clear values.
4. You Are a Part of a Story with Each Piece Bought.
Each design we create at Acdria has a story. Our designers have seen the butterfly somewhere or, like we talked in the post about Chrysanthemums and Poppies, the story can have a much deeper meaning. You are a part of that story when you buy and wear that piece of jewellery.
It’s easier to make sure each product has the highest quality when is made by hand, because, as part of the process of making the jewellery, each piece and part is inspected many times. Also, as makers, we are very proud of our designs and our work, and we take care to ensure each item is the quality we think should represent us.
