Excellent question! There is no simple test that can tell you whether an artisan hand-crafted your jewelry or not. No easy way to know if an item is handmade or factory-produced. But there are details that you can look out for, and hopefully a discerning eye will guide you right. First, look at materials. If a bracelet is made of leather with embossed detailing, or sterling silver with intricate carvings or stone settings, you are entering the realm of the handmade. If a bracelet is made from bone, or makes use of complicated beadwork, if there is evidence of welding or carving, then you can feel good about your purchase. Any true artisan will tell you: no two pieces of jewelry will come out identical if they are made by hand. Beware of sameness. Celebrate the idiosyncrasies of the artist’s hand and help preserve the techniques and traditions of the past.

Awesome fun bracelet
The styles are trendy and well made. Price was right. I bought my daughter 5 of this type bracelet as she likes to stack them. I enjoy shopping fair trade!
It s very beautiful although my bracelet broke after a few days of wearing it I contact the seller and they send me a brand new one , which I still have without a problem.
Boy was she surprised.
I purchased this for my daughters 40th birthday. I wanted something that was different, that she would cherish and remember long after I am gone that I gave it to her. A memory of a mother that cherished her. She loved it so very much and said that next to her wedding ring it is the most beautiful. highest quaility and unusual piece she has.

Handmade Bracelet with Multicolor Recycled Paper Beads, "Love Affair"

The artist uses the paper at hand so paper colors will vary, making each design a unique example of handcrafted art. These beads receive a protective coat of clear nail polish.
