There are many materials used to create handmade jewellery. This is part of its widespread appeal, as each material tells a unique story about the jewellery piece. For example, wood is a common material used for diverse beadwork. This material is earthy and strong, and best of all, sustainable.
Copper is another common material used to create handmade jewellery. Copper is flexible and therefore perfect for intricate swirls, complex patterns, and trellis work. Glass can also be used by jewellery artisans, such as those used in the stunning Destino Jewellery Murano glass earrings collection that uses materials from Venice, Italy. The unique results are as beautiful as they are environmentally friendly.
