Why your Handmade Wrap Bracelet doesn’t look EXACTLY like the picture

So, your Handmade Wrap Bracelet doesn’t look EXACTLY like the picture you saw online…

It’s true – gasp!!!! Every single bracelet I produce in my studio doesn’t look exactly the same as the one I photographed and I’m totally OK with that! And you should be too! 🙂 

Actually, I love that not every bracelet looks the same. They’re not supposed to be clones of each other. I am not trying to recreate a factory produced product – and that’s ok. 

Each piece of leather is different – with a different colour and patination which comes from the natural dying process, each bead catches the light in a slightly different way, and you can customise every bracelet with a personal charm – all of those things make each bracelet unique, special and handmade.

Now, there is a difference between ‘Handmade’ and ‘Homemade’. I was discussing this with a friend yesterday and it’s an important distinction:

 

Handmade vs Homemade

Why your Handmade Wrap Bracelet doesn’t look EXACTLY like the pictureThe superior quality, time and craftsmanship that goes into creating a Handmade piece means it usually carries a premium price point, will feel special and stand the test of time. A Homemade piece is absolutely not the same!

If you check out my FAQs, I have a ‘Handmade Pledge’, which reads as follows:

 

Our handmade pledge

All our items are handmade. Therefore each item is unique and small details may differ from the pictures on our website. We keep tweaks to a minimum, but please be aware that colours can appear altered on screen and our leather has patina which gives it character! So, small differences may appear – and that’s pretty awesome!
