Buying Custom Jewelry Scholarship

CustomMade is a marketplace for creating custom items in cooperation with North American-based production shops. Consumers come to CustomMade in search of fine custom jewelry including custom rings, custom bracelets, and many other types of custom creations.

At CustomMade.com, we believe in the production and purchase of locally-made products. An increasing challenge faced by local jewelers is that of overcoming the competitive prices offered by companies that manufacture overseas. Many local jewelers, like those on CustomMade.com, compete by offering a higher quality and one-of-a-kind product that will last for generations - delivering better value to the consumer.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016.
