Not sure if handmade jewelry is right for you?
I get it. There are many jewelry options, and figuring out what jewelry styles you appreciate and want to add to your collection can be challenging. But, I think there are many good reasons to consider adding handmade jewelry to your collection.
Everyone is different. We’re all unique, and we all have our own goals and concerns in the world. We all want to stand out, at least a little.
When you buy handmade jewelry, you’re always getting something unique. The process of making handmade jewelry ensures that no two pieces are identical. There are always slight differences in the stones or how everything goes together.
When you wear handmade jewelry, you aren’t just wearing a collection of pretty stones and metals. You’re also wearing the hard work and dedication of the artisan that made it.
I don’t know about you, but I think that’s pretty meaningful!
Build Special Meaning Into Your Wardrobe
Handmade jewelry is also a fantastic way to create a more meaningful and connected wardrobe. Birthstone jewelry is one example - celebrating someone’s life and birth with the unique gemstone connected to their birth month. But, there are many ways to build meaning into your jewelry.
For one thing, natural stone jewelry is a way to bring nature into everyday life, with tiny works of art that you can wear everywhere.
The meanings behind individual gemstones can also help you set your intention or give yourself special reminders.

Ethical And Sustainable Creation
One of the most significant advantages of buying handmade jewelry is that handmade jewelry can be much more environmentally friendly than mass-produced jewelry.
For one thing, the labor of making handmade artisan jewelry is done by the artisan, not expensive energy-intensive machines or underpaid jewelry factory labor.
Finding handmade jewelry artisans who care about the environment and work to give back, like Earth Song Jewelry, helps ensure your wardrobe is as sustainable and Green as possible.
Miniature Works Of Art
Handmade means that every piece is a reflection of the creative process of the artisan. Everything, from my birthstone jewelry to my interchangeable necklaces and earrings, is inspired by something.
My art often starts with the shapes and colors of nature. I also want to honor our planet in other ways - like offsetting the environmental impact by giving 10% of my sales to help fund impactful environmental causes here in Colorado.
You Appreciate The Process
There is something magical in creation. Taking raw materials and turning them into something unique and beautiful isn’t just an act of skill. It’s also one of the biggest things that make us human. Not simply our ability to craft and shape the world we live in, but our desire to make that world ever more beautiful.
Buying handmade jewelry helps support artisans and people like me who work to make our world a better and more enjoyable place.
Connect With Nature
Okay, I’ll admit that not all handmade jewelry has the special connection to nature that my jewelry does. Every artist is different, meaning that every artist has slightly different reasons for what they do.
When you buy from Earth Song Jewelry, you’re not just getting jewelry inspired by nature; you’re getting natural stones that are themselves the art of nature in miniature.
Plus, since I’m committed to supporting eco-friendly business practices and ensuring the bounties of nature are here for future generations, part of your purchases from Earth Song Jewelry also help keep our planet green!
