Franklin Lakes, NJ (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Owner and lead artisan of SKM Artworks, Susan Miller understands the reluctance some may feel towards making jewelry purchases on-line. So for February, Miller makes pulling the trigger a little easier. Through the Free Shipping February Promotion, Miller helps buyers get comfy with her new handmade jewelry line in a no commitment way.
All February, purchasers at SKM Artworks' on-line store have the luxury of trying on jewelry, knowing they didn't have to pay for shipping. If for any reason, it's not a perfect fit, there's no loss. There's even Free Return Shipping for exchanges.
SKM Artworks, offers a collection of meaningful wearable art created by weaving stunning jewels and precious metals within Irish waxed linens and certified-green leathers...rustic with a luxury twist. These unique pieces of artisan jewelry convey individuality and satisfy the desire for social contribution, making any woman feel as good as she looks.
The SKM Artworks mission:
1. Celebrate individuality through unique handcrafted design. Owner and lead artisan Susan Miller handcrafts her pieces using techniques she developed to merge the craft of crochet with the art of jewelry making. By carefully choosing the gems she works with, Miller has managed create an affordable line with striking visual appeal and amazing stylistic flexibility. These are versatile pieces that morph easily from day to night -- think equally at ease running around town or on the red carpet and you’re starting to get the picture.
2. Use of natural materials in a creative way. Miller describes her jewelry as "handcrafted luxury with an indie vibe". Using sustainable materials where possible, her unique style of weaving gorgeous jewels and precious metals within waxed linen and certified-green leathers gives the collection an organic appeal that feels as if it’s been grown rather than made. Adding to this are the marvelous finds resulting from a constant search for antique and reproduction artifacts--from Buddhist symbols to Roman Coins and antique gaming chips--all presented in a manner that conveys an innovative style with an eye for the classics.
3. Do well while doing good. Miller’s own social work background ensured that SKM would have a mission greater than exclusively offering beautiful hand woven jewelry. Since founding SKM Artworks in 2010, Miller has supported many local NJ charities in addition to designing and selling items where proceeds benefit specific charities; the "iHug Wristhug" that benefits the iHUG Foundation – a grassroots organization serving many of Uganda’s most impoverished children; and “Ignite” for Kula for Karma, a non-profit offering therapeutic yoga and stress management, at no cost, to at risk populations.
"I don't just want people to look great while they're wearing our pieces. I want them to feel great, too," Miller says. "They can do that knowing who we are and what we stand for. If getting a little Free Shipping along the way helps customers feel more comfortable, we are certainly very happy to do it."
