Oprah: Design your own jewelry (no assembly required)

Oprah’s “LifeLift” blog recently published “Design your own jewelry (no assembly required),” including a mention of a Treehouse Logic powered customizer – Charmed by Ingrid Anne.   Will Oprah’s golden touch spark mainstream adoption of the design-your-own-market?   Here is an excerpt.

“Making your own jewelry can be a chance to express your creativity and personal style. But for those of us who don’t have the dexterous hands of a jeweler, securing a clasp or tying a microscopic knot on a homemade bracelet or necklace can be more frustrating than stress-relieving. If you fall into the latter category, Sheyna.com, a design-it-yourself jewelry site, might be the perfect solution. With over 5,000 chains, charms, beads and stones to choose from, ranging in price from $5 to $5000, you can get your arts and crafts vibe going at any price. The best part: Clicking and moving your mouse are the only skills needed to design your dream jewelry. Just select individual pieces from the gallery (or a ready-made design from the shop that you’d like to alter) and pull them onto the drag-and-drop digital sketchpad. This tool even builds your jewelry on a budget—pricing out your bracelet, necklace or earrings as you make each addition.

Blossoming jewelry designer? After you’ve finished your sparkly masterpiece, you have the option to publish it and share with other shoppers, or keep this one-of-a-kind creation for yourself. Sheyna’s pieces are handmade by artisans from around the world and arrive on your doorstep ready to wear. It’s official: DIY has never been easier.

Other DYO (design your own) jewelry sites we like:

  • The bracelet building function on Pandora.net is particularly fun, and you can create everything from watches to rings.
  • Charmed by Ingrid Anne offers adorable necklaces at affordable prices—the perfect personalized gifts for your friends.”

  1. Get a feel for her personality and budget, as well as the expectations of the bridesmaids. Wedding jewelry should not be the only thing you see when you walk down the aisle bridal accessories should you compliment and an arrow that points you to the sight of everyone.

  2. This is going to be a great challenge for me. I am also a jewelry designer. This is so much fun!
