I think of handmade, well crafted luxuries in this way, as little details that make one savor the small moments. I simply love putting on my favorite pair of very-worn handmade leather boots, still, every time. They only get lovelier with each passing year and well worth every penny I spent on them.
I love the way a simple necklace can can feel so good to put on because of its handmade clasp. Or a pair of simple hoops earrings are extra fabulous because you can see the handcrafted quality in them. I treasure little thoughtful details that improve the quality of life a tad little bit. It's what handmade artisan jewelry is about I think. Something that is crafted with love...with attention to detail and maybe even custom designed with you in mind. A treat like that resonates...for a long time.
So I was reminded of this today as I packaged up a bunch of Honey Tribe lovelies that were being shipped to their new homes. I wrapped them in gorgeous hand printed paper and smiled, thinking about how good it might feel to open such a delightful package, and then stripping the beauty away to the treasure beneath! Ahhh! I am vowing to remember the details more...not just in my business, but in MY own life as well!
