Where Handmade Jewelry Began

Where Handmade Jewelry Began

The history of handmade jewelry is almost as old and rich as the earth itself. While the people of prehistoric times would adorn their bodies with natural items found among them such as shells and animal teeth, handmade jewelry became a bit more significant within ancient civilizations like Egypt and China. They began to make jewelry out of precious stones and raw materials which required great skill to be mined and made into pieces of jewelry. Each piece would be uniquely crafted for the person wearing it. This in turn, of course, made jewelry accessible to only a small part of the population and was mostly used to show status and rank.

The History of Handmade Jewelry: Back Then to Now

The History of Handmade Jewelry: Back Then to Now

Creating handmade jewelry has been around practically since the dawn of time, with the earliest records of handmade jewelry being made by Neanderthals in Europe. Perforated beads that were made of sea shells and small stones have been dated as far back as 115,000 years ago. They've been found in a cave called Cueva de los Aviones, which is located on the southeast coast of Spain. Shortly after, humans moved on to using items such as bones and teeth to make primitive adornments for themselves and others.

Artisan vs. Handmade Jewelry: Is there really a difference?

Artisan vs. Handmade Jewelry: Is there really a difference?

When searching for pieces of jewelry to add to your collection, it should not only be a representation of taste but also your personality. Finding those pieces to add to your chest should take about as much effort as finding the right dress to wear to a cocktail party or finding the perfect handbag. Any jewelry aficionado understands each piece that is added to their collection has a story of origin. They are also able to tell you what and why that particular piece is so special to them. All jewelry is not created equally. With that in mind, your jewelry should be a clear and unique representation of YOU.
