Next time you are thinking of taking a trip to the high street to buy maybe an expensive individual charm bracelet or a blingy cheap fashion accessory think again. For a fraction of the price on the high street you could have a handmade probably unique one off piece that has been carefully designed and created by hand rather than mass churned out in some far away land by probably underpaid workers. Hand made jewellery artists usually use top quality materials. Very often they will make you a piece to your own requirements as well. Very seldom are they expensive.
Handmade jewellery comes in lots of different shapes and sizes and the choice is just amazing. Take a look at some of the Folksy and Etsy shops I have listed on my blog. You will find plenty to choose from there. You are of coarse welcome to browse my own website as well Egyptian Inspirations for a wide choice of unique handmade jewellery. There are many more handmade jewellery artists to choose from. If you are looking to buy locally then look out for local craft fairs.
Please help support handmade jewellery artists by buying handmade items you could very well end up with a very valuble and treasured family heirloom in the future.
Here are just a small selection of of my own work to show the variety of styles which are available on the market today.
