1337 Art's handmade inspiration

I started making jewelry for myself after never being able

to find something of quality and value at department stores. I found out about
target="_blank">Etsy, and I was amazed at how many people have such an interest in all things handmade.



In the forums I have met a bunch of great people, and I have learned a lot of stories of the people behind the

shop. I fell in love with handmade items, and it is wonderful that I can support someone when purchasing a unique

item.

I have also started doing Artist features on

My blog
.

That feature handmade artists. It is important for the world to learn the charms and joys of

buying handmade.

I much rather buy something that was made with someone's own two hands.
