The Village Council
Your answers straight from the village experts
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.

This bracelst is really life very.It has a old world vibe in a new bracelst. I am wearing it all the time.
I bought this for a friend, and am pleased that it arrived (early) and is very beautiful. Shell love it.
Spirals have deep meaning in many cultures and in science. This simple bracelet is heavy in weight, not hollow, and says exactly how I feel even though I cannot articulate it on my own!
