What's the difference to you between "Handmade Jewelry" and "Jewelry Made with Handmade Components"?

I see a big difference between the person who takes store bought materials and makes jewelry with them and the person who hand paints beads, uses their own lampworked beads, or makes focal pendants from resin or polymer clay.

How would you classify/title someone who makes the key components as well as assemble a finished item? I'm looking for a 2-3 word phrase that differentiates the two. Any ideas?

Handmade jewelry would seem to encompass both types of crafters and is somewhat vague.

Would the latter be more Artisan Jewelry maybe? Wink

I had thought about that too but worry it makes it sound too expensive.

Nah. people like that kind of title. makes the work sound expensive to other people after they've bought it.
