Fine Art and Craft
The debate between fine art and craft can be perfectly rationalized by simply looking at and understanding jewelry. In my opinion, just like most art, the difference between the two ideas depends on the person. However, no one can deny the truth--while homemade jewelry may be fun and crafty, much of it can also be fine art. It has true beauty and meaning, and most importantly, it was made from a person with love, not a mechanical machine. Just as the picture shows, this is a handmade necklace, yet each flower is so artfully done, it looks realistic. And together, the flowers make a cross. On the back of the necklace, the words "this is love" appear. Personally, I would consider this art, made my a delightfully artist person.
