Indie-Pendants, Give me Liberty; I'll make jewelry

Aside from the artistry and personal effort that goes into the jewelry pieces created by the members of Jewelry Creators Unite in Numbers (JCUIN) there is a more compelling story than meets the eye. Why would someone spend hours creating a beautiful pendant and then offer it for sale at a price much lower than lesser quality pieces found in typical jewelry outlets; perhaps only twice the value of the raw materials? The joy for an independent artist is in the creation. The sale is a means to keep creating art and remain independent. The buyer gets a bargain; a one of a kind, hand made jewelry piece. The artist keeps creating. Everyone wins.

Take a look at these wonderful hand made creations by some of the members of JCUIN. Take the time to visit their shops and bookmark your favorites. Don't be shy about contacting the artists, they love feedback.
