Good Morning Everyone,
It is a glorious sunny day here in Cheshunt today.
I was having a little think this morning as I checked my social media and updated my website (www.astepbackintime.co.uk).
I was thinking about the nature of handmade and how I probably don't shout from the roof tops enough about my work being handmade.
So today I made a list of the reasons why I think handmade is so important in this day of commercialism and mass production.
There are so many amazing craftsmen and craftswomen our there. I am absolutely blown away by some of the ideas and creations these people come up with.
The main reason I think handmade stands out so much is because of the personal service. Right from the outset the person that is making something for you cares if you order from them or not. You are not a number or a statistic, you are a person and that is recognised by a handcrafter.
When something is being made for you, the person making it cares and thinks about you and the reason for making it.
When you order from someone that hand crafts they think about that piece even when they are not making it. And when they are making it, they are completely focused on it and making it perfect. It is a little piece of them that goes into every thing they make and they won't let anything leave the studio if they are not 100% happy with it.
So for me, as an artisan, I want to shout it from the rooftops, we make handmade 3D Life Casts and Silver Fingerprint Jewellery. We craft every piece of jewellery and every life cast by hand. We love what we do and we know you do too.
Please support us local businesses and trust us with creating something so important.
Have a great day all.
