Why We Love Handmade Jewelry March 07 2016, 0 Comments
We LOVE handmade jewelry. We support local and American artists at Silverado Portland, and here's why:
Jewelry is personal. There are often memories, special occasions, or specific meaning that goes with it. Furthermore, it is how we adorn ourselves--it is an extension of who we are and what we show to the world.
It makes perfect sense to us that jewelry should be made by, and bought from, independent artists.
There is an interesting article, "7 Things You Didn't Know About Handmade Jewelry," which makes a great point:
The next time you consider purchasing a handmade piece of jewelry, remember that even though the piece may be an investment, you are supporting something even bigger. You should feel really good about your purchase knowing that you have a special piece of the artist in your jewelry collection.
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
