Creative And Unique Handcrafted Earrings


Handmade jewelry has been a sought-after closet “staple” for decades. Whether it’s the only kind of jewelry you buy or something you picked up on vacation, you have at least one piece of handmade jewelry.

What is it about something that’s made by hand that draws our attention? My theory is that an artisan’s personal connection and love of their craft transforms ordinary objects into jewelry masterpieces. Still, most people don’t understand the true value of handmade jewelry compared to its mass-produced counterparts.

 

We live in a world where many things are mass-produced. Not that there is anything necessarily wrong with that. It’s great that some things are manufactured in massive quantities in order to fill a worldwide demand for them. But it’s also wonderful that more people everywhere are beginning to embrace things that are made by hand in small quantities.

 

When you think about it, handmade pieces are always unique in their own way. No two pieces of handmade jewelry are exactly the same. Even if the creation is part of an edition, you’re not likely to bump into someone wearing the same piece of jewelry as you at a party. You are the only person with that specific piece of jewelry which says a lot. From the finishes to the lines, they are always different or custom. It’s something just for you, every single time.

 


Earrings are one of the oldest forms of jewelry, used to signal status, rank, and function, as well as for ornamentation. Today, we may forget the rich history and meaning behind some of these traditional works, but global artisans and jewelry designers are working hard to make sure we remember. From extravagant earrings woven of fine metal filigree to colorfully beaded masterpieces that add vibrancy to any look, these treasures are unique works of art that reflect the originality and creativity of their makers.


What makes handmade earrings a special purchase?


Handmade earrings are something that you can’t find in stores. They are designed by someone who is passionate about their work and it shows. It’s not just the design of these earrings, but also what they stand for. Buying a pair of handmade earrings means supporting a local artist, designer or maker’s family.

I think also that in almost every case, the materials involved in handmade earrings are of stellar quality. It’s difficult to regulate or even know exactly what alloys are used in mass production factories where unexpected nickel or other metals can cause unwanted reactions. Handmade materials are generally sourced from highly reputable suppliers. Smaller-scale production is almost always higher quality because the ability to track and control the process from start to finish is inherent in the making process. Makers and artisans are extremely proud of the work they produce, they aren’t going to let something of inferior quality leave their studio with their name on it.


Jewelry designer and maker Alice Honeywell offers some great options, she designs finely crafted jewelry using semi-precious gemstones & ceramics that are distinctive and colorful, inspired by exotic, captivating possibilities in jewelry design.

Created her jewelry brand Earth Accents with the mission of creating versatile handmade jewelry at a price most everyone can afford. So if you are looking for a colorful statement to finish off an outfit or if you're inspired to find a unique piece to build a wardrobe around you've come to the right place.















The next time you consider purchasing a handmade piece of jewelry, remember that even though the piece maybe a little more costly than a mass-produced design, you are supporting something bigger than yourself. You should feel really good about your purchase knowing that you have a special piece of the artist forever in your jewelry collection.
