Business Briefs: Artisan Jewelry offers 3D custom jewelry designFrom Staff Reports
Artisan Jewelry Company on Hwy. 154 in Sharpsburg offers customers a custom design system that brings 3D technology to the ancient art of jewelry making.
Customers first select a starting point from thousands of options. Then, using the 3D software, customers have creative control to customize every detail of the jewelry from stone size, shape, and color to extensive design changes.
“You then receive a totally unique, one-of-a-kind piece that you helped create,” said Tammy Northcutt, owner.
The program, Countersketch, “is not only an amazing technology but a remarkable tool that allows customers to either utilize gemstones that they already have to create something new they will love, or start from scratch to create a beautiful piece of jewelry that is uniquely their own,” said Heather Kutzman of Artisan Jewelry.
