Which One Is Handmade?
Let's have some fun! If enough people participate, I will do this on a weekly basis. I've had a lot of feedback on my article on spotting the mass-produced from the handmade, so let's see if you can do it. The pictures, descriptions and prices shown are quoted directly from web listings. Can you spot the mass-produced item? Check out the two items below and vote for the one you think is handmade. I'll reveal the answer on Thursday!

These dichroic bead twirly whirl spiral earrings are amazingly lightweight and measure approx. 3" from bottom of sterling silver ear wire to bottom of dichroic bead.
The beads are gorgeous - just gorgeous! Alive with color - pink, gold, blue, green and more. They explode with color whenever the light hits them. My photographs do not do these beautiful beads justice!
A shiny silver colored bead has been added to the dichroic bead, and both are wire wrapped to the twirly spiral earrings.
So what do you think? Is Item 1 or Item 2 mass produced? Vote in the comments section and check back on Thursday for the results!
