Handmade jewelry is jewelry which has been made by hand instead of machines. Drilling, cutting, etc. can be done with the help of machines. In earlier times, members of the royal family had their own jewelers who crafted excellent jewelry with their hands according to specific needs. Even though new jewelers have come up, the old tradition of handmade jewelry is still into existence.

Handmade Jewelry Handicrafts

The one big advantage of handcrafted jewelry is that the customer gets to sit with the jeweler to decide upon the design and pattern of the jewelry. The process is a tedious one as it involves a lot of planning and finalizing on the designs and deciding on whether stones should be embedded or not. Handmade Jewelry includes bangles, bracelets, necklaces, chocker sets, earrings, etc. There are different types of handmade jewelry available.
