I was making jewelry as a hobby and giving them out as gifts and people were impressed with the way they looked and suggested I make a business out of it
Huber Heights, OH (PRWEB) September 17, 2009
These days, most people find their jewelry at big box retailers or mall stores. The concept of purchasing jewelry that hasn't been mechanically manufactured seems like a distant memory from days when handmade wares were popular and chic. There is a demand for items that are made with heart and soul, versus the cold steel of a machine. Judith McClelland is filling this void through her new web venture http://www.JKMGemsJewelry.com.
"I was making jewelry as a hobby and giving them out as gifts and people were impressed with the way they looked and suggested I make a business out of it," McClelland said of her company's origin.
Launching the website in December 2008 and enlisting the help of her daughter, McClelland makes handcrafted necklaces, shoe charms, and semi-precious stone bracelets, among other fashionably popular items.
"Our goal was to offer unique jewelry that is not extremely expensive and with my daughter working with me, it definitely has a modern twist," she said.
One of McClelland's latest items is a line of watches with interchangeable bracelet style bands, which are unique pieces in their own right.
A new feature that McClelland started recently is her new jewelry blog, http://www.JKMGemsBlog.com.
The blog covers an array of topics such as finding the proper jewelry that can coordinate with an outfit to the origin of some of the gemstones that McClelland uses. "Overall, the blog will provide a informational background for our items, so that people will know a little bit more - such as care - about the jewelry," she said.
Styles do change, but the love and art that goes into making a handmade article of jewelry is something that cannot be replicated by a machine and will no doubt enhance someone's aesthetic tenfold.
