Repairs are a breeze. Chances are that your favorite piece of Beaded Jewelry is probably going to get some wear and tear. With handcrafted Beaded Jewelry, there is a good chance that you can return to the same artist for repairs–not likely with something you bought at the mall. Most of the time, it is impossible to know who creates the things we buy. So would it be nice if on occasion you could put a face and a name to a product? When you buy from small artisans, each piece comes from the heart of the artist who created it, allowing you to feel more connected with the jewelry you choose to wear.
Sometimes the prices for mass produced items are cheaper than handmade items, while sometimes the opposite is true. However, even if you do spend slightly more on a handcrafted item, the long-term quality you receive will be well worth the extra few dollars you shell out initially. When an artisan handcrafts a piece of beaded jewelry, they are pouring into it their creativity, passion and love. So when the person who creates a work of art truly cares about the creative process, the beauty shines through uninhibited making a stunning piece of beaded jewelry that much more enviable.
Here is a story about it. How do famous gems and beaded jewelry pieces get their names? Many named after their owners, or after a famous place or incident. The Diamond named after Horsens de Beauharnais, a French woman who led an adventurous and illustrious life… but she never owned the Beaded Jewelry. There is no record of her having even worn it! They may have gotten out just in time. After enough time passed, Marie Rose and Hornets’ moved back to Paris, and began to make a name for them once again in French society. Josephine caught the eye of the already famous general Napoleon Bonaparte, who lavished her with gifts of beaded jewelry, and married her. When Napoleon became Emperor, he also came into ownership of the French Crown Jewels, including the 20.53-carat Diamond. Maybe the flat, peach-pink stone named after the girl during this time, due to her love of gems and beaded jewelry.
