Jewelry - Art or Industry?

I read up on the history of jewelry-making. Until just a few decades ago, jewelry was manufactured in small workshops, where you could find one of a handful of masters hard at work.
Each workshop had its own personality and style. Each was known for turning out products of jewelry that could properly be called "works of art."
Today there are jewelry factories where hundreds of people work. The jewelry industry is doing great.
As for jewelry art... authentic, unique objects that express the soul of the maker... This is something you have to hunt for. Generally, you find them only at craft competitions, in home workshops, and on the Internet.
Now they can properly be called "rare works of art." On photo ring "Sea Shell"designed by Renata Grabois
