Buy Handmade for the Holidays - Only 23 shopping days left until Christmas!

Buying Handmade makes for better gift-giving.
The giver of a handmade gift has avoided the parking lots and long lines of the big chain stores in favor of something more meaningful. If the giver has purchased the gift, s/he feels the satisfaction of supporting an artist or crafter directly. The recipient of the handmade gift receives something that is one-of-a-kind, and made with care and attention that can be seen and touched. It is the result of skill and craftsmanship that is absent in the world of large-scale manufacturing.
Buying handmade is better for people, better for the environment, and better for giving truly special and well-crafted gifts.

I agree! Handmade is so wonderful.
Handcrafts are just more personal. A real live person took time and pride in making something they hope someone else will appreciate.

I just love your jewelry and think you do a great job on it!
Have a good day.
