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.
Featured Review on New Arrivals : Bracelets
Im almost embarrassed to say (but not too embarrassed!!) :-), this is my 4th bracelet made by Shanker! While the styles are all similar, the stones are very different. They are sized large enough to wear above my not so small watch, or you can clasp it smaller to fit your wrist size. The is the first one that is all one color, and the photo does not do it justice. He has an amazing eye for detail. Im sure there will be a 5th!!
