It takes time to create a presence on the Internet. Lots of work goes in to designing the jewelry. It almost seems like more work goes in to all of the things that it takes to develop the business end of it. That is why it gets so exciting when custom orders start coming in. This is how we measure where we stand and what we need to do next.
All of the jewelry from Handcrafted Jewelry USA is based on a one of a kind piece. What that really means is we do not mass produce our work so that we can sell it on TV in mass quantities. Handcrafted Jewelry USA takes pride in making unique pieces that are far beyond the mass produced items found in most stores, most jewelry parties and in most jewelry catalogs from most companies. The norm is for a designer to create a piece and then send the design to a factory.
The factory then puts the design on the assembly line and pushes the start button. Not exactly but close. C.S. Alexis spent several years learning in one of the largest mass produced jewelry companies on an assembly line. The company bills itself as the oldest and largest jewelry manufacturing company in the world. C.S. learned a lot during her time there. It was a magnificent experience when it came time to learn from some of the best, most skilled jewelry makers in the world.
The thing is most of the jewelry was mass produced and then personalized with engraving, certain adorning applications such as initials and names and maybe some specifically chosen stones. C.S. actually loved the work and the people but most of all she loved the learning. When the time came to design, create and sell her own line of handcrafted jewelry, C.S. was able to turn much of what she learned into practical knowledge that would help.
That being stated, might help others see how important it is for everyone at Adrift Art Studio, and Handcrafted Jewelry USA to offer something more. We want to make each experience with our customers to be "made to order". We value each and every customer and we take pride in providing unusual, handcrafted jewelry that is NOT mass produced but made for the people who want to wear pieces of jewelry that they are not going to see on somebody else.
Pictured here is an example of a piece that was ordered from our Etsy store, Handcrafted Jewelry USA. We offer 100% satisfaction guaranteed. This order was taken from a similar bracelet but the buyer wanted the piece fashioned from a shiny silver colored chain. We offered her this custom made piece that is 7 1/2" in length made from a silver plated figure 8 chain. It rocks!
