Handmade Jewelry - value second to none.
The reason that people value handmade jewelry so highly is because it is just that - handmade. This makes it unique from all other pieces of jewelry that you will see in the world. Beautiful pieces of jewelry are created by designers with programs fed into machines everyday, but creating a piece of handmade jewelry is done one at a time, and each piece is created with the skill and creativity of the individual artisan.
Handmade, or artisan jewelry, as it is often called, dates back to 7000 BC. In this time, man began experimenting with gold and copper by sculpting it into human form. The sculpting and creation of accessories to decorate the human form came quickly thereafter, and has existed as a form artistic expression ever since.
Unsurpassed beauty and originality are what people look for in handmade jewelry. Many examples of this can be found at artisan websites like Night Fox Jewelry. Take a look at the examples of handmade jewelry at Night Fox Jewelry and you'll appreciate the evolution of this art form that commenced almost 10,000 years ago.
Often times, handmade jewelry is also custom-made to the tastes of individuals. Whether the handmade jewelry that you've seen was custom-made or not, the meaning and story behind the piece can often be told by studying the intricate markings on the piece - both the display side as well as hidden sections. Look at all angles and intricacies of handmade jewelry and you may find something that was meant only for few to see!
