What is Art Jewelry?

Lately, I've been reading and thinking about what is artistic jewelry as opposed to the jewelry that is mass produced, machine made in some factory.  Handmade jewelry artists have written that the difference is the passion and the technical skill of the individual artist, and I agree.  The passion to create something unique and beautiful for a special buyer is one of my main motivators.

  But, even more than that might  be the desire to improve my skills, become better with each new design so the design is simple and unique  and well made all at the same time.

The downside of all this, of course, is that often handmade, artistic jewelry costs more than the mass produced kind (although not always).  Sometimes, the popular brand names are pricey for the materials they use and the brand name is what raises the price.  Individual jewelry artists must finance all the equipment,  materials, shipping, etc. so their costs for each item may be higher than for huge numbers of items made in some factory in Asia.

I hope when you considering buying a piece of Lucky Sea Glass Jewelry you will see that it is a special, one of a kind item that is handmade with care and with artistic intent.  Thank you, and I would like to hear your comments!
