During the 1970’s artisan and handmade jewelry became popular. The huge hits were handmade earrings as well as statement necklaces. While never really going out of style, artisans and handmade jewelry are making a comeback as women move express their creativity, individuality and even their values in their dress and fashion decisions. There is also a more modernized approach with a more global inclusiveness, and openness to indigenous patterns and colors along with a pull for more unusual and eco-friendly materials.
Artisans and handmade designers have stepped up their game when it comes to designing their own unique jewelry collections. To compete with the new and modern jewelry that is being mass produced and sold in the market today, they also need to create something unique and beautiful that will stand out.
