Why is handmade stuff expensiveI've posted this article on my jewellery blog originally, but I thought I'll post it here as well to reach more readers.Why is handmade stuff expensive by ukapala
This topic has been covered numerous times by pretty much everyone who sells their crafts, and every artisan has their own reasons for making particular items more expensive than other and some of the reasons are the same with every person. I will write however about my own creations and try to explain what you pay for buying MY jewellery.
I was raised in a Poland, which lies in Central Europe and was one of the communist countries back then. You probably have only a vague idea about how that system worked, but bottom line was people in general were rather poor and stuff wasn't available. And I'm not talking about luxurious stuff like jacuzzi tubs or fancy food, I'm talking about basics.
For example: meat was rationed and the choice of vegetarian food was quite poor
Before I am human, I am an artist. I live and dance and play in music. I reside in silence and thoughts and creativity. My imagination is enslaved by literature and my soul tied to ages past. I began in a void of nothingness, and I am created as I create.
I'm an introvert with a life long love of art in all of its forms. I am self-taught in all of the crafts I choose to express myself in. Sometimes words find me and spill through my fingertips, other times I opt to leave my den to create soap and candles. Every now and then I scratch a photography itch, and lately I have buried myself in jewelry and called it metal poetry. My primary and favorite form of art is being left with a sketchbook and a pen to drown in music to doodle the things that reside in my head.
