Mother’s Day is coming up! have you thought about what you’re going to give your mom this Sunday? I bet most people would have thought immediately flowers, if not jewelry. Flowers may be less expensive, but they are generic gifts, just like greeting cards. Jewelry, on the other hand, is special because it takes a lot of money to buy them.
However, not all beautiful jewelry are made with expensive metal and stones. Handcrafted macrame jewelry is also as special as gold or silver. In fact, some macrame bracelets and necklaces are adorned with birthstones, rare colored stones, or Swarovski crystals.
A great place to buy special handcrafted jewelry is Etsy.com, which is a large marketplace of, not only macrame jewelry, but everything handcrafted, from dresses, jackets, shoes, belts, fashion accessories, hair accessories, and even pet accessories. Etsy shops sell all kinds of crafts, including those made from wood, glass, metal, fabric, and paper.
Good Etsy shops that sell macrame jewelry are those owned by Sophine Giam and SS10001. Sophine’s works were already featured in this blog along with a candid interview with her. SS10001′s works can be seen featured in this blog post. An interview with her has been set for a future post.
Buying from Etsy shops like theirs is easy. All you need is a Paypal account. Etsy sellers are very professional and trustworthy. They usually ship items within 24 hours, arriving at your doorstep in good condition. The site itself has a rating system that ensures sellers get accurate feedback, which other buyers can base their purchase decisions. The higher the rating, the more reliable the seller.
