Handmade jewellery has always been around but it is now becoming harder to find but if you take time to look you will find young and talented designers especial from the UK who produce unique and original pieces. We are all unique so why adorn ourselves in mass produced pieces when there are stunning original pieces available

Handmade jewellery is the most perfect thing to give as a gift as it is very personal and holds sentimental value to both the giver and the receiver. Each piece that is passed down through the generations has its own personal and poignant tale to tell. It may have been given as a gift for a special reason and the sentiment values in these cases is far greater than the value of the precious metals and semi-precious gemstones in the design.

There is always a history with everything and same applies to handmade jewellery, it was at first only the nobility and royalty that was able to afford these pieces. It was given as bribes for favours from royalty and it was worn to show wealth and power as many of the precious metals and gemstones that these stunning creations were handmade from were rare and expensive. When we look at portraits of nobility from years gone by we can see both men and women adored in the magnificent pieces like peacocks.

Today the market seems to have moved to the mass produced fashion pieces that are found in every high street store. Necklace jewellery, bracelets, jewellery sets, earrings and pendants are produced by the thousand all in bland designs. We are still able to purchase piece of handcrafted jewellery but we have to search for these. We can find a talented designer through recommendation of a friend or family member. There are many young and talent jewellery makers that are being trained in the UK and they are producing stunning and innovative designs for us to purchase.

So where do we find these jewellery artisans who produce these unique and original pieces of handmade jewellery? We can attend high end crafted fairs where craft workers from ever kind come to sell their produce. This is where you will find different designers working with different materials creating stunning pieces that will have something for everyone�s taste. Beautiful necklaces that have been handmade from silver and set with semi-precious stones like Tigers Eye, Onyx and Turquoise. You will find many unique jewellery sets that include matching earrings and bracelets or bracelet and a necklace. A whole array of bracelets that can be fashioned from wood or maybe with beautiful handmade glass beads will be available to you. If you cannot make up your mind on the day many of these handmade jewellery designers have websites so you can go home and study there full collection in the comfort of your own home and in some cases online prices are cheaper than when purchasing at the craft fair.

Buying choosing a piece of handmade jewellery there are many advantages. One of these is that you can have an input into the design. You are able to suggest the metals to use or the semi-precious or handcrafted glass beads to add to the design. You may want a necklace with a specific stone, jewellery sets that will compliment an outfit or a pair of earrings in a certain colour and this you will be able to achieve. The other advantage is that if you have your piece of unique jewellery breaks you can have it fixed or if you lose one earrings you can have a replacement piece crafted for you.

We are all unique so why would we want to wear designs that are produced by the 1,000�s? It is a good idea to build a relationship with your jewellery designer so that they can produce pieces of stunning handmade jewellery that will reflect your own individual style and your unique personality. Surely it is it is better to own one piece that is unique and original and makes a statement about you and your personality than many mass produced pieces. Take a look at jewellery UK designers and see some of the most unique and original designs they are producing.

During my long career in fashion I have seen many changes but the love of handmade jewellery has always been in vogue. We can see that today jewellery UK can offer us many unique and original designs, if you want earrings, jewellery sets or bracelets they are all available from these talented designers.
