Owning at least one piece of handmade jewelry is a “must-have” for every closet. It can be from a one of a kind that you have searched for or a piece you pick up while you are on vacation. Handmade jewelry has a certain appeal about it that you can’t help but want one for yourself. My theory is because of the effort and love that the artisans put into their craft.
Do you have a piece of beaded jewelry that you don't wear? Maybe it's out of date, or it's broken. It might be too small for you, or too big or heavy. Or there are a few nice beads, but the whole thing is...well, it's ugly.
But you just can't bear to get rid of it. The piece evokes wonderful memories of someone you loved who wore it, or your own memories of a treasured time when you wore it yourself, or of someone who gave it to you.
