Unlike the jewelry found at large retailers, handmade jewelry is, well, made by hand and sometimes made to order. Because each piece is unique, it is the only one like it anywhere. Handmade jewelry makes the best gift because you can be sure no one will already have the same piece in their jewelry box. Not to mention how touched your loved one will be at the thought you put into your purchase. Every time they pull that special piece from their jewelry box, your loved one will think of you and smile.
