Handmade vs Manufactured

Handmade Pieces by Dede Marconato

The art and craft of hand fabricating jewelry is an ancient one. In a truly hand-fabricated item, every element is formed, assembled, joined, and finished entirely by hand or with hand tools. Manufacturing, on the other hand (pun intended) often means the metal is never even touched by a factory worker until it is time to polish it.

Following the guidelines of the US Federal Trade Commission at Dede Marconato Contemporary Jewellery each piece is hand crafted by me using traditional techniques.

Handmaking each piece ensures that quality will never be compromised. Clients can be assured that when they wear a piece made by me, it has been crafted with meticulous care.

I conceptualize, design and make one off custom pieces as requested by the client.  My artisan collections are limited editions ensuring exclusivity of the design.
