Looking to gift yourself or a special person? Handmade jewelry is a great choice. At a festival, peruse the jewelry. You will see a variety of work from casual to elegant, with corresponding prices.
- If you are looking at high end work, ask as many questions as you like to support your comfort level.
- Ask if the work is fabricated (each piece made one at a time, or cast in a mold). Ask about the stones, their names and origins.
- Love the work but can’t find exactly what you want? Ask the artist about making a special commission piece just for you!
