What do we mean by handmade? March 12 2012

All of Lai's jewellery is handmade.....you've heard us say that before. But what exactly does it entail for jewellery to be classed as handmade?

"To be able to call a product handmade, trading standards bodies universally require that the jewellery meets either of these two criteria: (1) The jewellery is made with hand-guidance whilst operating machinery or (2) simply that the jewellery is made entirely with the use of the hands and no machinery involved at all."

Ours is mostly (2) & occasionally (1).
