The Eighth Wonder’s designs reflect things that are important to craftsmanship.
We offer handmade jewelry from simple hand assembled pendants and bracelets to intricate designs that take months or years and skilled techniques to finish. What they all have in common though is that jewelry and pottery artists make each individual piece using only their hands and simple tools. When you choose to purchase a piece of handmade jewelry or ceramic or rug, you're going to get a unique keepsake each time. There may be slight imperfections but there will always be a story behind not only the design but the artist your buying.
