Hand-made Federal Trade Commission definition:
There is a legal definition in the US for Handmade items of jewelry. Casting and the use of pre formed
parts (findings) do not qualify as handmade. See below.
A7 23.3 Misuse of the terms “hand-made,” “hand-polished,” etc. (a) It is unfair or deceptive to represent, directly or by implication, that any industry product is hand-made or hand-wrought unless the entire shaping and forming of such product from raw materials and its finishing and decoration were accomplished by hand labor and manually-controlled methods which permit the maker to control and vary the construction, shape, design, and finish of each part of each individual product. Note to paragraph (a): As used herein, “raw materials” include bulk sheet, strip, wire, and similar items that have not been cut, shaped, or formed into jewelry parts, semi-finished parts, or blanks.
Casting CAN NOT be describe as handmade!
